Ecosystem services are the benefits that people obtain from ecosystems. Examples include food, freshwater, timber, climate regulation, protection from natural hazards, erosion control, pharmaceutical ingredients and recreation. There are presently ongoing efforts worldwide to develop international markets for ecosystem services as well as examples of projects where Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) have already occurred (see The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) Project website for more information).

3GreenTree’s business model integrates multiple ecosystem services into a management portfolio of revenue drivers which can provide returns superior to typical timberland investments.
