Our goal is for our rental properties to be carbon-neutral. To achieve this, we plant trees. Over its lifetime, one tree absorbs approximately half a ton of damaging greenhouse-gas carbon from the environment. Trees also support ecosystems, produce oxygen, and protect against soil erosion. Our annual funding of The National Forest Foundation enables the non-profit organization to plant sufficient trees in areas of U.S. National Forests damaged or destroyed by wildfires, insects, or overuse to offset the carbon produced by our rental properties each year.
