General FAQ

Making use of your donation we purchase land fit for forestation and plant the optimal trees for the specific soil to maximize Carbon sequestration from the environment. This over time generates carbon offsets which we transfer to our partners to reduce their carbon footprint.

TreeChange currently accepts donations either directly from companies or in the form of a collected lump sum of donations collected from a company’s customer base. For more information please contact us at email:

The creation of forests has significant potential to improve the lives of local communities by benefiting people personally and by benefiting Ireland overall.

Trees remove harmful pollutants and fine particulates from the air and water such as pesticides, soot, smoke, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides trapping them within the bark and ultimately storing them away from the immediate environment where they have the potential to do harm.

Trees help preserve Ireland’s top soil from erosion by anchoring the ground, furthermore they benefit the environment by sequestering Carbon dioxide and play an essential role in maintaining Ireland’s biodiversity.

TreeChange is currently developing a scheme to facilitate companies and communities to work together to reforest their local areas. For more information on these schemes please contact us via email.


Trees within Ireland are typically planted between October and November. Following a donation you can expect your offsets shortly following the tree planting period of the year.

The Charitable Donation Scheme allows tax relief on qualifying donations made to eligible charities and approved bodies.

If an individual makes a donation of over €250 in the year, the charity or approved body can claim a refund of tax paid on that donation by the donor.

If a company makes a donation of over €250 in the year, the company can claim a tax deduction as if the donation was a trading expense.

There is a four year time limit for making a claim under this scheme.
