Terraformation pledges to help restore native forests around the world to capture carbon and help reverse climate change.
At Terraformation we take a holistic approach to restoration. We partner with communities across the globe to scale their reforestation work by addressing the largest operational bottlenecks to restoration. This includes providing localized data on soil conditions and native plant species lists suited to the area, on-the-ground training, financing, modular seed banks, and low-cost desalination tech to solve freshwater shortages.
Today, Terraformation is expanding partnerships around the globe, including with restorationists in Ecuador, India, Tanzania, and Uganda who share our vision for place-based, and community-driven native ecosystem restoration.
We’re on the ground planting trees to restore existing forestland, implement afforestation or agroforestry programs, and more. To make change, more has to be done to accelerate the restoration of billions of acres of degraded land. It will require a coordinated, physical effort at a scale hard to comprehend, perhaps bigger than anything humans have attempted before.
Restoration projects face four large operational bottlenecks: training, tools, seed supply, and funding. The solution to each of these is the same: access. At Terraformation we use tech solutions to address partner’s challenges to scale. We ship our suite of off-grid, modular hardware and software to project sites around the globe, enabling projects to scale rapidly without compromising quality.
● Restoration seed bank. Our solar-powered modular seed banks have all the equipment necessary to process and store millions of seeds for consistent viable seed supply.
● Nursery development. We support forest creators in constructing durable nurseries for healthy seedling growth, getting projects off to the right start.
● Solar powered desalination. We can help your team find solar-powered desalination systems to solve freshwater shortages and accelerate restoration in arid regions.
● Software suite. We're building a software suite that streamlines data collection and progress from seed collection to forest health monitoring.

Our team of experts from around the globe has decades of forestry and botanical experience and believes in a holistic approach to restoration. Native forest ecosystem restoration is site-specific, community-led, and long-term. We partner with private and public landowners to identify, customize and nurture diverse tree species that are native to each site. Supporting the partners with monitoring tools, resources, training, and solutions ensures the site will transform into a lush green forest.
