Seed Formations and ForestNation

We hope to raise awareness among new business owners on how their new business can take ownership of the environmental impact that their business has on the world. We envision that planting a tree for every company formed on our site will inspire new business owners to make their own commitments to be environmentally conscience businesses. We hope they will make their own pledges and that these social values will become part of the company’s long term goals.

We hope that each tree planted has a wide-reaching effect on the planet and local communities, for today and for tomorrow.

Social Responsibility

Seed Formations is the first socially responsible company formation agent in the UK. We pledge to plant 1 tree for every company formed on our site. We believe that every business, not matter how big or small, can make a positive difference to the world we live in. We hope to empower new business owners with more than a the usually company set up, but we hope to instil a sense of ownership of the business’s duty to be more socially and environmentally responsible.

 

In 2020 we will be the first company formation agent to offer a ‘GREEN COMPANY FORMATION’ through which a company is formed and the owners commit to being a socially and environmentally responsible company.

About Seed Formations

We believe that there is no such thing as a small business, every business starts with a big dream and we hope to be the launchpad that helps people achieve those dreams.

Seed Formations offers individuals from around the world an online platform to legally incorporate and manage a company in the United Kingdom. We see ourselves a little more than a UK company formation agent, because we offer our customers a personalised service and dedicated assistance to help their companies get off to the best start.

Planting Forests in Tanzania

Seedlings will be outplanted in the Magamba Nature Reserve to rebuild the forest cover. In addition, the project will plant trees to preserve the Lushoto water catchment basin, which supplies fresh water to over 20,000 people in the Lushoto Township and is important to the health of the Reserve. Trees will be planted along waterways to prevent future stream bank erosion. Fruit trees planted at the schools and on subsistence farms in agroforestry are a key element to the Green Schools Program. Besides providing much needed nutrition to the children and adults in the area, fruit tree cultivation protects fruit trees growing in the nature reserve.

FAQs

ForestNation is a social business. We combine commercial, social and environmental goals equally. We empower individuals, companies and organizations to fulfill their own missions whilst growing a forest and creating sustainable livelihoods. We believe that giving back to Mother Earth should be fun and inspiring.

CO2: A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of carbon dioxide per year on average throughout its lifetime.
O2: Trees breathe out oxygen 4 to 5 times the amount of CO2 they absorb each year.
Land reforested: 1000 trees per hectare is a general reforestation best practice.
Jobs created: It takes 68 hours for 1 caretaker to create 10000 tree seedlings and 1 hour per day to maintain them. That translates to 40 hours of work for every 1000 trees.

For every 10,000 trees planted at least double that will germinate naturally within 5 years providing for generations to come. Also the forest provides habitat & shade for animals, natural resources for locals and adds to the beauty of the region.

We plant in the forests of Tanzania, Haiti, Uganda, Malawi, Madagascar and more. All our Tree Planting Projects create sustainable livelihoods. All the trees absorb CO2, offset carbon emissions and contribute towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. More details about where we plant trees for each campaign are explained on the campaign page.

We work closely with our local tree nurseries to ensure bests practices are followed. They use agroforestry techniques where trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland to increase natural reforestation and biodiversity as nature intended.

We mostly plant trees which provide harvest to the local communities. For example, fruit trees are planted around schools in Tanzania to provide nutrition to the children. Our trees also help avoid land degradation. For example, trees were planted along the Lushoto water catchment basin, which supplies fresh water to over 20,000 people in the Lushoto Township and is important to prevent future stream bank erosion.

It takes 8 to 9 months for tree seedlings to be prepped for plantation. Different species are stocked up and made ready for planting during favorable seasons. For example, our Tanzanian nursery plants from March to June and October to December.

A Tree kit has everything you need to grow a tree from seed. We plant matching trees for every tree kit you get as a gift. We also plant matching trees whenever you name your Tree on ForestNation.

Trees connect you with Mother Earth and ignite your nurturing instinct. Growing something from seed helps you experiencing nature’s magic and give back. Tree kits also support our local Tree kit maker (1000 kits create a full day of work).
