Curious about carbon credits? Find out if your land is eligible.




Is your forest eligible for carbon credits?


We use AI and remote sensing technology to evaluate your land remotely and estimate what you could earn from carbon credits. You receive a full Land Assessment report, completely free of charge.



Every landowner is unique - and so is every block of land. We'll answer all your questions and help you understand the requirements of the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

You decide whether carbon farming is right for you, and if so, which areas to register.



We compile all the necessary evidence, land maps and carbon calculations to get you registered for CarbonCrop Units and/or ETS.

Many landowners receive an upfront payment of carbon credits, plus ongoing returns. A percentage goes to CarbonCrop – and we only get paid if you do.

Native CarbonCrop Units:
Just launched!

Good news: If your regenerating native forest isn't recognised by the Emissions Trading Scheme, you may still qualify for carbon income through CarbonCrop, thanks to artificial intelligence.

"I couldn’t find out anything about carbon credits really. It is very difficult to get anything sensible out of the Government websites...


I got in touch with CarbonCrop to get set up and they did everything from that point."

"We had bought a property in 2021 without the intention of applying for the ETS, but asked CarbonCrop to check out its possible eligibility. This was more out of intrigue rather than expectation of any positive outcome. To our surprise we were told that a significant proportion of the property could qualify for carbon credits and Kevin, with considerable patience and knowledge, guided us through the process.


He clearly explained the potential benefits and obligations that we would be committing to if the land was indeed eligible, helped us build the case and submitted the ETS application on our behalf. We would like to sincerely thank Kevin and CarbonCrop for their professionalism in helping us to navigate the complexities of the Emissions Trading Scheme."

CarbonCrop is based in Nelson, New Zealand, and has team members working remotely in Christchurch and Auckland too. We use state-of-the-art technology to help Kiwi landholders access carbon credits. We want to play our part in addressing the challenges of climate change and create a future we can all be proud of.


A technology company at heart, we are a recent spinoff from the Nelson Artificial Intelligence Institute, where the core of our solution was conceived.


Together with landowners around the world, our vision is to pull a billion tonnes of CO out of the atmosphere and lock it up in trees. In the process we will improve agricultural resilience, restore degraded landscapes and boost farm profitability. We're particularly focused on encouraging native reforestation, which benefits wildlife and biodiversity.


We assess your land using aerial imagery and remote sensing data, underpinned by artificial intelligence. We review what's on your land now,  what was there in the past and what might be there in the future. This ensures you get everything you're entitled to. And because we can do it all remotely and offer a success guarantee, there's no risk for you as a landholder.
