¿Cuántas veces tengo que pagar por un bosque?

Pagas una vez. Y nosotros hacemos el resto por tí.

¿Qué es una subscripción periódica?

Una subscripción periódica te permite hacer crecer tus bosques de forma regular.
Por ejemplo, si gastas 100 € de gasolina al mes, puedes compensarlo regularmente. Lo mismo para la factura de la luz, o del internet, o del gas, etc.
Puedes cancelar tu subscripción periódica siempre que lo desees.

¿Puedo visitar mi bosque?

A young forest is very fragile. It would be a question of: what is better for our forest?
We don’t put fences on our forests (At least we have to protect it from wild fauna) so anyone could come in. However, please, try to not step on a new forest for, at least, the first 5 years. And when you do, be extremely cautious. The forest is a living organism, and that includes the soil we step on, and as sch, it needs time to become mature.
Keep in mind that we will regularly post images and you can always watch out your forests via our satellite images.

¿Cómo se calcula la cantidad de carbono capturado?

There are rigorous scientific studies that tell us estimations on how much each tree variety captures through time depending on many variables such as climate and the soil type. We have to add the carbon that is sequestered in the soil, in the animals and of course, in the roots of the forest. We will perform periodic tests to correct our estimations if needed.

¿Soy el propietario del bosque?

Yes, you are the owner of a percentage of the forest. We call it share. Each member owns a certain amount of shares of the forests. In other words, you owe a percentage of the ownership.

¿Qué es una participación?

A forest share is exactly the same concept as a company share. The forest does not belong to one single person but to many persons, it belongs to the Reforesum members.
This is our way to make economically viable that people can join together to save the planet. And also to reunite our members together around the same goal and around nature.
Imagine a piece of forest of 100 square meters. Let’s say we divide that forest in 100 pieces, there you have a share. Notice no one can own 100% of shares of a forest.

¿Puedo vender mis participaciones?

Our shared model does not allow this because we don’t want to create forest shares as a good that people can trade with. Reforestum has not been thought to create an economic profit for its members and or a way to make savings for future. However, under special conditions you can transfer your forest as a family heritage.

¿Porqué no está permitido poseer un 100% de las participaciones de un bosque?

Our mission is to make sure of the longevity of our forests. Once a forest is planted, we have to keep it forever (Of course we can not tell what will happen in 1.000 years). Therefore, our policy is that no one can own more than a 49% share of a forest, like this, no one could ever claim any rights for it. Either Way, our legal advisors have made sure than when a member acquires a share and therefore agrees to a contract, all possibilities are covered and the forest best interest protected.

Dado que los bosques tienen un coste regular para Reforestum, ¿De dónde vivene el dinero para mantenerlos?

We make sure than when you buy your share, you are paying all expenses for the next 30 years. After that, we will use the forest surplus to pay the maintenance that it requires.

¿Qué ocurre si un bosque es dañado por un desastre natural o condiciones metereológicas adversas?

In case of such unlikely and unfortunate scenario, the members of the forest will keep the shares. And each one of them (individually) will have to decide weather to weather pay a little extra contribution for the works that the forest needs, or keeping it wild. Take into consideration that if Reforestum would assume this expenses, the rest of Reforestum forests would be in danger.
NOTE: In order to avoid an abusive use of our forest: not even in the case of a natural disaster the members can sell their shares.
