Tracking planting for the One Billion Trees Programme

We collect data on the sale and distribution of exotic and native tree seedlings. We'll use this data to estimate the number of trees being planted.

For the purpose of our tree count, we're defining a tree as a woody perennial plant species that can grow to a height of at least 5 metres.
