Tree-planting projects in developing countries are expensive, particularly when they are undertaken in remote areas. Tree-planting service companies are usually based in center cities and lack technological solutions for distance-monitoring of what is happening with the trees after they are planted.
MicroForester provides a solution that makes small tree-planting projects cheaper and easier-to-monitor. The mobile app allows local people to perform tree planting and watering tasks, and submit photo-reports with attached coordinates and other data, receiving back micro-payments for each fulfilled task. The app will give users access to an online map to see the pictures of newly planted trees,as well as photo-reports of the growing trees, all through their web account.
