All of Carma’s UK trees are planted by veterans via The Green Task Force. This is a subsidiary of the UK Charity the PATT Foundation and was established to solve a number of prominent issues surrounding both the environment and our veterans.

A staggering 6% of serving & former serving personnel, and 17% of those that have been in a combat situation are suffering from some form of PTSD. Service leavers also suffer a lot of stress & anxiety when transitioning from the service.

It has been proven that getting veterans involved in Nature Based Therapy (NBT) has a positive effect on their mental health.

Our overseas trees are planted by Veritree. What makes Veritree so unique in their levels of technology that allow for complete transparency on your trees. Using ‘Blockchain Technology’  each tree is photographed, tagged and monitored. This enables for precise tracking of each tree – eliminating the issue of double counting trees.

This allows you and your business to have the most transparent information on your trees!

In the UK:

Carma does extensive research into what type of tree will be best for the area they plant in. This detailed and meticulous method allows them to maximise success and impact on the environment. 

Carma plants a diverse range of trees such as Oak, Beech, Birch, Ash and Willow.

To maintain healthy ecosystems and avoid monoculture, they run a biodiversity survey to ensure they assess the site’s condition such as soil type, water availability and sunlight exposure. Some tree species are better adapted to certain conditions than others, so we choose trees that will thrive in each site’s specific condition.

They are Carma’s biggest weapon in combating climate change, absorbing and storing harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and releasing clean, breathable oxygen back into the air.

But it’s not just about trees cleaning the air, they also help prevent flooding, reduce local temperatures and provide habitats for wildlife.
