Trees AI



An open source platform, enabling city actors to collectively value and invest in urban nature, at scale.












Our mission


We are in urgent need of a shift to respond to the climate crisis. Trees As Infrastructure is developing a transparent, verifiable financial platform to grow Nature-based Solutions, for resilient cities.

Through novel accounting and contracting models we value trees as assets, reorienting administrative procedures and attention toward the diverse environmental benefits and behaviours of urban forests.
