Since the tree can also be used as a cash crop or part of forestry (timber) after some years there is all we need in this, to make it self sustaining. (so the answer is yes)

Trees are a self sustaining resource in itself. They have multiple applications and therefore can be utilised as such. With the updates on the trees existence and the connection made between the grower and the donor quality/quantity can be measured and therefore the carbon offset market can be used to give the tree a real value. Currently the Carbon offset market seems not so user friendly for individuals. With our concept we can close the current gap between the user and the carbon offset market. This will increase stability and growth of the system.
One tree does more good than all the money in the world. ;-)
