    Once your application has been approved you will have access to our online learning material. You will use this material to acquire more knowledge about forest carbon and learn how to use the Carbon Works App. Once you have reviewed all of the online learning material, you will be evaluated with a brief quiz. If you pass the quiz then you will be able to use our smartphone device in your own forest!


    Use our simple app

    We provide a smartphone to easily measure the carbon in your forest. With the help of the online learning material you will learn how to use the Carbon Works App to take pictures of trees. Pre-loaded on the smartphone, the app guides and tracks your photos as you walk through your woodland following predetermined routes. The app and the smartphone are provided free-of-charge.


    Photograph your trees

    Use the smartphone to photograph trees, guided by the Carbon Works App. The app automatically selects some trees to be photographed; only a handful of trees are actually captured throughout your property. Recruit your family and friends to spend a memorable weekend in the woods.
