We have created a set of services to enhance nature conservation in areas managed by private owners or entities. We offer integrated carbon offsetting solutions for citizens or companies by financing environmental projects.

Technical support to municipalities in creating regulations for tree management in urban areas

Technical support in the creation and public discussion of municipal regulations for the management of trees in urban areas, depending on the local context of each municipality. Facilitation of the processes for general debate with citizens.

Large trees inventory – Green Giants

Service for inventory and characterisation of large trees following the methodology of the Green Giants project, including an assessment of ecosystem services provided by each tree.

Technical support for tree classification processes of public interest

The "Tree of Public Interest" comprises isolated specimens or groups of trees that, due to their representativeness, rarity, size, age, history, cultural significance or surrounding landscape, can be considered of public interest with careful conservation being recommended. We help with the application process to classify public trees according to Portuguese Law No. 53/2012

Corporate team building

We organize and promote team building and volunteering actions for companies, groups, associations and other organisations interested in contributing to nature conservation through planting native trees, controlling invasive species or building artificial habitat structures to foster biodiversity in Lousada.
