ForestNation in Tanzania

We believe in ForestNation’s mission. There are plenty of other companies doing their part to help the environment, and we are extremely grateful for all they do, but we believe ForestNation is the best partner for us in our goal to get more trees planted. Seager Co

About Seager Co

Seager’s mission is to create the highest quality products that inspire and encourage individuals to work hard for what they stand for. We aim to share the same Old Western ideas, style, and culture that continue to inspire us.

Seager is bridging the gap between Southern California surf culture and the traditions of the Old West; highlighting the similarities between two seemingly opposing cultures. Seager stands for working hard for your fellow man, and protecting the land that we all inhabit.

We are 1% For the Planet members, donating 1% of our annual sales to National and California State
Parks.

We are planting with ForestNation to help raise awareness for ForestNation and Earth Day. We want to do our part in helping rebuild our global ecosystem.

We’d like to take action and have our company and its customers make a positive impact. We hope to help plant thousands of trees from raising awareness this Earth Day.

We love ForestNation’s mission and product. They understand the power of business to help move these projects forward.

You Plant We Plant Impact

We plant matching trees for every Tree growing kit that companies give to their community, teams or customers. Our nurseries in developing countries like Tanzania plant and take care of these trees as they grow into a forest. We also plant more when people name their Trees on ForestNation.

For every 1000 matching trees ‘We Plant’:

  • 25 tons harmful Carbon Dioxide is offset per year
  • 100 tons of Oxygen is created per year
  • 40 hours of employment is guaranteed for local people
  • 1 hectare of degraded land is reforested

For every 1000 Trees ‘You Plant’:

  • 1000 people are connected to nature
  • 8 hours of work created for our Tree kit makers

We use locally harvested tree seeds in each Tree kit, so people can nurture home grown trees. Each kit is handmade with love by local Tree experts. Every element of the Tree kit is either compostable of biodegradable, leaving zero waste behind.

A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of atmospheric Carbon Dioxide per year. That translates to 25 tons of CO2 absorbed per year for 1000 trees. To put this in perspective, around 25 tons of CO2 is emitted per year by 5 passenger vehicles.

Please note that the CO2 aborption per year is a weighted average. This is because trees have low CO2 absorbing capacity in their early years, peaking as they gain maturity and then slowing down as they grow older.

You can learn more about the calculations here.

On average trees produce 4 to 5 times the amount of co2 they sequester each year depending on the species. So we are basing our CO2 number as a conservative estimate at 4 times.

We plant 1000 trees per hectare as a general standard of reforestation and agroforestry practices. This allows for adequate space for the trees to grow naturally as part of the forest.

It takes 68 hours for 1 person to create 10000 tree seedlings. Then approximately 1 hour per day to maintain every 1000 seedlings.

All this translates 40 hours of work created at our nurseries for every 1000 trees.
