SolTreez is an NFT collection of 4,245 pixelated treez on Solana. Each SolTree has a unique aesthetic, a yard in the MetaForest, and a treehouse-themed wallet viewer.
SolTreez was born from the counter-intuitive idea that NFTs can be beneficial for the environment. In 2021, Ethereum-based NFT projects like CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club broke into mainstream culture. However, critics cited Ethereum’s proof-of-work mechanism and absurdly high gas prices for being wasteful and unnecessarily harmful for the planet.
We wanted to show that an NFT project could use an energy-efficient blockchain to raise funds to plant real trees - a win-win for protecting Earth’s biosphere! Our job was to build out the tech, create a compelling brand, and hope that a decentralized community would form around our shared vision.
We are a certified business partner of One Tree Planted. For every SolTreez minted, 10 trees will be planted in real life! We will be publishing our certificate from OneTreePlanted when the donations have been finalized.
