REGISTRATION / PURCHASE POLICY –


We at weplantree facilitate registered users to enable planting of saplings for the purpose of greeting or can choose to purchase the service of planting saplings on behalf of them as a wider environmental initiative involving and providing opportunity to one and all. Users can purchase as many saplings as they would wish to be planted by first registering on the website with their details or the details of the person/entity in whose name the sapling has to be planted and the information regarding the well doing of the planted sapling to be communicated to the purchaser/client/registered user. Once the user registers on weplantree and initiates payment for the required number of saplings to be planted, and on successful payment, the registration is completed by sending an acknowledgement email to the purchaser by weplantree. This is followed with sending a link to a webpage which regularly uploads information regarding the condition of the planted saplings and the geo-tag of the planting location to the purchaser (link to their registered mail id).

Planting is carried out based on various factors such as location, sourcing of saplings, weather conditions, availability of land and availability of labour.

We prepare a list of saplings to be planted based on various factors such as Nativity, land use, weather conditions, availability of Human Resource etc. which is studied by our technical team. The immediate & primary beneficiaries Are given an option to choose from the shortlisted-listed saplings. Note: Primary beneficiaries refers to the immediate beneficiaries who have access to the saplings, that is the community members in case of planting in public spaces and the land owners in case of private spaces.

We plant the saplings on a ‘first cum first serve’ basis in batches of a min set of saplings to achieve maximum efficacy of planting. In consideration with this goal, a maximum buffer of 4 months in taken into consideration for planting. In case, weplantree fails to complete the commitment to plant which could be due to any circumstances whatsoever, the purchaser is refunded the amount paid in full (refer Refund Policy). The time-period of 4 months is because, weplantree collectively plants with a minimum of 250 number of purchases is received.

The company plants saplings in public lands and private lands only after securing written requisite permissions from the respective landowner. The planting pattern is carried out as specified by the primary beneficiary i.e. the landowner. For example, in case of private landownership, that is on an agricultural land, horticultural / timber yielding saplings are planted. Public spaces may opt for saplings to combat climate change effects offsetting carbon. The details of the primary beneficiaries will be shared with each client.

We at weplantree employ planting partners having substantial experience in scientific methods of planting saplings ensuring that all planted saplings will survive and thrive. Weplantree commits to nurture these saplings for a period of 1 year which is sufficient enough for any sapling to gain strength and the roots to hold on firmly to the soil and further could thrive with Mother Nature’s support.

We shall employ drone technology to make an aerial survey of the plantations, in order to monitor their growth periodically. These visuals along with geo-tags will be shared to individual client/purchaser over the first year of planting.

You understand and agree that weplantree cannot be held responsible for scientific accuracy, reliability of information it publishes on the site. We take utmost care and effort to provide reliable information and communicate the same to our users.
