The science of tree planting has many factors. Choice of species, type of soil, nutrients in the soil, temperature and climate etc are some of them. Making a choice of trees needs to be done in a scientific manner looking into all these considerations. Greenverz is developing the same to assist in planning for the trees and where they need to be put.
Similar species of trees get affected by the same kind of diseases. This can cause all the trees to die or give poor fruits and flowers. Mixing it with others shall reduce the same. At Greenverz, we are developing the means and measures to have the right mix to reduce mortality and boost growth.
In a natural environment the trees grow in a particular manner. There are all types of mixed species. Below there is grass, then small plants, then medium plants and then large trees. Nature has an order to grow. And these trees host different species of animals and birds. They live on the trees based on what they need from the tree. Greenverz is developing models to understand the same for different types of forests and climates. This has a wide scale use when anyone sets out to plant trees or create mini forests. Only through the way in which nature has done it for millions of years can we also plant the forests and get the same results of a carbon sink.
