Fifteen Trees can plant trees on your behalf to help collect your cars’ carbon emissions*.
In return for your $72.00 (incl GST), 15 trees are planted to reduce the footprint of your car for one year ($4.80/tree).
Not only will these trees help collect the greenhouse emissions from your car for one year, they will also be creating green corridors, providing native wildlife with habitat, and helping to reverse the effects of erosion and raising water tables (causing salt in the soil to rise to the surface). Trees also provide a vital role in maintaining a stable global climate. Not a bad effort from a small grove of trees!
Once planted, we send you the link to view your trees.
We encourage businesses to look at reducing their company’s footprint by letting us plant 15 trees for each car in the fleet.
In return you will also receive…
* a car sticker for each car,
* a direct link to your website from our supporters page,
* use of the Fifteen Trees logo,
* use of the blog (photos of your trees and the written comments) for your own promotional materials (e.g. newsletters and website).
Reducing your footprint is another step forward in the quest to take responsibility for our part in global climate change.

*The number 15 is a little arbitrary because it can depend upon your car make/model, how many kilometres a year you travel and even the type of driving you do (city or country). So, the actual number could be between 9 and 24 trees. In brief, one small/medium car will emit about 4000kg of carbon a year into the atmosphere. Over its lifetime, the average tree captures 268kg of carbon. Therefore, to capture the carbon your car emits and reduce your footprint, you need to annually plant 15 trees (15 X 268kg = 4020 kg).
