Carbon-Compensating, Fuel-Producing Trees

What do we do?

The Corekees Foundation offers you carbon-compensating, fuel-producing trees.

Our tree is known for its ability to absorb CO2 – or “carbon”. In addition, the nuts on the trees contain crude oil. This oil is used as renewable fuel; a direct alternative to fossil fuels.

The combination of replacing fossil fuels and absorbing carbon makes these trees about as green as it gets. The crude oil-profits are yours – the environmental benefits for us all..!

10 trees already compensate 6000 kilometers by car. Calculate your own CO2 Footprint with the Carbon Calculator below to see how many trees you need and make yourself climate neutral.

Environmental Benefits

Do your part - carry your weight

True Sustainability

Each tree that is planted has the life expectancy to outlive you and us easily. The total process of planting, growing, harvesting, refining and using the trees’ oil (as green, renewable fuel), compared to the continuous COproduction, absorbs more CO2 than the fuel emits. Each tree is the equivalent of about 570 km or 350 miles driven a year. That means, if you drive 10,000 kilometer a year (or 6,214 miles) a year, you will need 18 trees to neutralise your environmental footprint. And that’s for as long as you live!

Benefits for Everyone

We use a 20-year partnership between you and your tree. This way, the tree is most profitable and the land most accessible. After the twenty years, the trees’ ownership will transfer to the land owners (local cattle farmers).

The Process

How does it work ?

1. Order Trees

2. Land preparation and planting

3. Field maintenance

4. Harvesting and crushing

5. Selling crude oil and protein

6. Receive profits from the oil and protein
