Physical tree counter - How to buy & setup

The physical tree counter can be connected to your review forest. Even your brand forest, if you have one. It updates at least once a day to reflect the current amount of trees you have planted. The tree counter is manufactured by Smiirl. Setting it up is quite easy.

How to order

The counter can be ordered directly from Smiirl. As ReviewForest customer you get a special deal. You only pay 359€ (+ VAT, if applicable) instead of 399€. In order to claim the deal, use this link:

Choose Custom Counter

Make sure the promo code 'REVIEWFOREST' is applied.
Click Edit logo

Now choose Images in the menu on the left. Instead of Designs by Smiirl choose ReviewForest

Drag & drop the illustration of the tree onto the counter.

Increase the size so it fills out the box.

Confirm the design by clicking the checkmark in the top corner on the right.
Continue with the order process by clicking 'Proceed' and fill out your dates to complete the order.

That's it! Now your tree counter will update automatically with the total amount of trees you've planted.

If the counter is placed in a quiet environment where people are working, we recommend changing the reactivity to once every 12 or 24 hours, as the changing of numbers is quiet noisy.
