How does EcoMatcher work?
EcoMatcher adopts a three-pronged approach to help facilitate a transparent tree planting process – with the TreeCorder, TreeManager, and TreeTracker applications each assisting different stakeholders, from the farmers of partnering tree planting foundations to the end-user clients and employees receiving the trees.
Firstly, TreeCorder provides foundations and farmers with an easy-to-use mobile application to capture information of each tree they plant, from the precise location of the tree, date of planting, a photo of the tree, the species, and even the farmer.
Businesses or individuals can then purchase these trees through EcoMatcher’s website, adding trees to their TreeManager account. Through the TreeManager, a suite of digital tools is made available, from customizable TreeCards to API integration to enhance the digital gifting process.
Finally, tree recipients can utilize TreeTracker, a web application using satellite maps, to monitor their tree, and read up on details about the tree, from information about the species, its growth potential, as well as who planted it and when it was planted. Tree recipients also can download an iOS/Andriod app for this purpose.
