show me the money treenation.com

There are already 9 months since I bought my first tree on treenation.com. This is a Barcelona project that aims to plant a heart shape green island in subsaharian Africa.

Sounds a little like something that Romanians did in the 50’s when, in my native town Brasov, then named Stalin City – in the honour of the “great” leader, when they plant trees on Tampa leaving only the Stalin name from firs.
The purpose I think is better this time.

For the moment this is the first and last tree that I bought although I really liked the idea and my intention was to buy more. I wanted to buy one for each member of my family, the first one being dedicated to my mother.

But what I see is a lack of attitude in the website organization. I don’t notice too much project activity. I see email with general environmentalist news, content generated on other places and a lot of partners. Instead of all this I wanna see a picture of my tree, small or big, ugly or not, at least too know that is alive and my money did go into a right place. I want to see how the things grow, live cameras, satellite images or other stuff to that will make me still believe in you.

This discussion continues in their forum.
