We are focussing on planting the trees our subscribers and gifters have purchased at the moment and hope to have a corporate offering ready soon. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to our notification list we will update when we have this ready.
We are unable to refund tree gifts or subscriptions if we have already planted the tree or trees in questions. However If you make a purchase by accident please let us know by emailing email@example.com as soon as possible and we can check it out for you.
Can I make a cash donation?
We are unable to accept cash donations as we are not a charity. We are a not for profit social enterprise and you can purchase tree planting gifts or subscriptions on our site.
How much of my purchase goes to planting trees?
Wolfgang Reforest is run by volunteers – we don’t accept wages or compensation so 100% of your purchase goes into acquiring land to plant trees, the planting and protection of native Irish trees, and the promotion of our mission to reforest Ireland.
What do I get if I gift a tree or subscription?
You will receive a PDF cert via email – congratulating your giftee or you for becoming a Wolfgang Reforester. The cert is a digital PDF and is emailed to you. You can then print it out or send it to your giftee.
Do you post the certs out?
We are trying our best to be a paperless company so we do not post the certificates out. We email them to you and they are high resolution if you wish to print them yourself.
Can I get a tree planted in memory of someone?
While we can’t plant a specific tree for a specific person, we can create a special ‘In loving memory of’ certificate with the name of your loved on on it. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange it for you.
Will I get a specific tree?
Our method of planting, the Miyawaki method, means we plant a lot of trees and as we are a small team of volunteers we don’t have the capacity to match a specific cert with a specific tree. When it is safe to do so you will be able to visit the forest in general! We will be writing a blogpost about our version of the Miyawaki method soon, in the meantime you can find out more here: https://www.ted.com/talks/shubhendu_sharma_how_to_grow_a_forest_in_your_backyard
Can I pick what kind of tree I plant?
We plant a broad mix of native Irish trees. You can rest assured your tree will be part of native Irish forest but we can’t match a specific tree or species to each order because of our use of the Miyawaki method (see Ted Talk).
Can I visit my tree?
When it is safe to do so you will be able to visit the forest in general! We are in the process of meeting the insurance requirements to allow guests so once that is ready you will be able to visit the trees. Our method of planting, the Miyawaki method means we plant a lot of trees and as we are a small team of volunteers we don’t have the capacity to match a specific cert with a specific tree.
Are you carbon certified?
What trees do you plant?
