Our edge is solving the tree survival problem.

Restoring Forests. Sustaining Life.

Harnessing the Power of Trees™, we serve communities globally to help restore their environment, benefit economically, and collaboratively design and implement large-scale reforestation projects.

Unleashing the waiting flood of investment requires derisking afforestation.

High tree mortality has been a persistent challenge.

Spades increases tree survival to improve investor returns, create climate resilience, save habitats, and help communities.

Our projects give returns via carbon offset credits, timber, and agroforestry benefits.

Reforestation is an unprecedented opportunity.

  • Trillions of dollars are earmarked for climate change.
  • Trees are critical for removing greenhouse gasses already emitted, while forest density creates local climate resilience.
  • Tree assets can mature to over 20x costs, enabling investments that achieve over 20% IRR.
  • But, projects can be risky, and tree mortality can be high.

Spades’ unique assets help derisk afforestation.

  • Biotech selects different local trees and grows them differently.
  • Balanced finance drives returns for all stakeholders.
  • Global project portfolio is implemented by planting partners who have most of the world’s regreening capacity.
Our vision: Sustain our world with trees by integrating thriving human, environmental, and economic solutions.
