We help reforestation projects overcome bottlenecks so they can grow carbon-thirsty forests faster and more efficiently. Our Terraware software enables partners around the world to remotely monitor all aspects of restoration — from the seed bank to the nursery and the planting site.
Supporting Restoration Teams from Seed to Forest
We’ve developed the first-ever specialized software to support the entire reforestation process. We’re continuing to expand and refine our Terraware web app, including adding features that allow you to remotely monitor conditions in your seed bank, manage inventory, and integrate with botanical databases for more robust data.
We want to see biodiverse native forests in as many places as possible. That’s one reason we made Terraware open source. Check out our code here.
Stay tuned for expanded features.
Track Your Seeds - Now Available
By tracking every seed through deposit, processing, and storage, Terraware’s simple interface enables highly accurate record keeping. Detailed data helps you bank the right amount of each seed for your collection — improving seed viability and ensuring the optimal mix of species for your restoration sites.
Mobile Field App - Coming Soon
The Terraware mobile app will support the web app by allowing anyone to collect data in the field using a simple interface — no need for an internet connection.
Using a mobile device, seed collectors can easily keep track of the number and types of seeds they gather. When they return to the lab to drop off their collections, they can upload information to the seed bank database, automating the transfer of specimen data and accompanying records.
Better data allows restoration teams to quickly adapt so they are always storing the right kinds of seeds at the right time — which is key to quickly growing the biodiverse forests our climate crisis demands.
