Using new tools, The Freshwater Trust calculates the ecological uplift of restoration projects and communicates the value of our work. Uplift = the quantifiable environmental gain of a project. For example, when we plant trees next to a stream for shade benefit, we calculate the solar load avoided. When we plant the trees for nutrient reduction, we calculate the change in pounds of nitrogen and phosphorus runoff.
