Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Single.Earth?
Single.Earth is a deep tech startup that helps to preserve nature and biodiversity by creating a natural capital marketplace where socially responsible companies can directly connect with land and forest owners and invest in a better Earth for us all.
Why do we need Single.Earth?
Single.Earth offers an alternative for land-owners to benefit from their natural capital so that they have an incentive to preserve old-growth forests, wetlands and other unique ecosystems.
We show the value of our ecosystem and help people understand the impact of our actions and create a community around reaching global climate goals.
Who finances the switch?
We enable organizations to invest in preserving nature in their local environment and give them a comprehensive metric to show their contribution and inspire others.
How much will I earn as a forest owner?
Depending on your forest type, age, size, biodiversity value, habitat type, etc. and whether you change your forest management method or create a nature conservation area, your annual income can vary from 80€ - 250€ per hectare.
For how long do I have to commit my forests to the project?
The length of the contract in the test period is one year. If everything works fine for you, we can sign a contract for a longer time after that time.
What kind of information do I need to share about my forest when I sign up?
Single.Earth is asking for detailed information about your forest- location, forest type, age, size, land cadastre.
What are sustainable cutting methods?
We need to see every forest separately to give recommendations on sustainable cutting. Regularly we support using selective cutting and shelterwood logging. Our aim is to encourage you to foster continuous cover techniques.
