Tree Planting Technology

Bext360’s blockchain technology can calculate individual tree carbon sequestration and trace carbon credit ownership

Individual Tree Tracking

Ground-Truthing

Auditing

Blockchain ensures that carbon credits are tracked and retired to a single consumer by creating an immutable and transparent ledger that records all transactions

Use Case 1: Individual Tree Tracking

Plant Tree & Record in App

  • Tree is planted and each tree planting event is recorded as a transaction in mobile app
  • Secure, immutable blockchain record of each tree is created

Evaluate Individual Tree

  • Individual tree record is updated with Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) and tree health status
  • Farmer takes photo for proof point, verified with geolocation

Calculate Carbon Sequestered

  • Diameter, height, tree species, and location are used to calculate biomass and quantity of carbon sequestered

Verify & Issue Carbon Credits

  • Tree is planted and each tree planting event is recorded as a transaction in mobile app
  • Secure, immutable blockchain record of each tree is created

Retire Credit to Consumer

  • Tree is planted and each tree planting event is recorded as a transaction in mobile app
  • Secure, immutable blockchain record of each tree is created

Use Case 2: Ground-Truthing

 Identify existing project

  • Existing carbon offset project requiring auditing to confirm carbon sequestration values is identified

 Determine Auditable
Area

  •  Subset of carbon offset
    project area is identified
    to conduct ground
    truthing at the individual
    tree-level

 Conduct Ground Truthing

  • Data such as diameter, height, species, and location of individual trees are collected using Bext360 mobile app
Provide Verification
  • Tree biomass is calculated to verify carbon sequestration estimations
  • Carbon credit is verified
