Restoring the underground networks of forests

Rhizocore Technologies produces locally-adapted mycorrhizal fungi to enhance tree planting success. By working with native fungi, we offer a sustainable solution to accelerate woodland regeneration, improve forest productivity, and increase natural capital benefits.
Improved growth rates through better access to nutrients, minerals, and water.
Greater tree resilience to stresses such as droughts and root-borne diseases.
Increased carbon storage both in the soil and in tree biomass.
Mushroom roots being exposed.
Below the surface of almost all forest floors, are networks of extraordinary fungi that support their trees by supplying essential nutrients through their roots. These fungi quickly die when their host trees are felled, and when we try to replant on these areas, trees have a harder time establishing, leading to slower growth rates, higher mortality, and lost potential for carbon sequestration.

We believe that growing symbiotic fungi is just as important as growing trees. The complex webs they weave are our path to a future that is more aligned with the interconnected networks of nature.

Restoring our planet’s woodland ecosystems starts with one small but mighty cube of fungi: the Rhizopellet. Our pellets contain fungi that we locally source, bespoke to each planting site. Adding one into the soil with a young sapling ensures the tree will be given the best chance of taking root in its new home, ready to flourish and stand tall for generations to come.

We are currently working towards our Carbon Accreditation.
