Frequently Asked Questions

The popularity of Tree Canada’s online carbon calculator shows that Canadians want to know more about their carbon emissions. More importantly, they are also searching for meaningful ways to take action on climate change.

Tree Canada created the app to offer the community another way to track and reduce their footprint while connecting with other app users.

Yes, there is an option for app users to plant trees directly through the app to help compensate for their carbon emissions. These trees will be planted as part of the National Greening Program, a carbon compensation and mass seedling planting program that operates in every region across Canada. Trees will be planted in the year following a donation.

Each user’s carbon emissions are calculated using conservative estimates. Emissions factors are national or provincial averages. Tree Canada used the following sources to ensure calculations are not underestimated.

Note: Carbon footprints reported by the app are conservative estimates and do not capture all factors that contribute to an individual’s complete carbon footprint. The app’s goal is to increase awareness of your footprint, enable you to take action – in the app and beyond – to reduce your footprint, and inspire others to make lifestyle changes to help address climate change.
