When you plant a virtual tree, GCash will plant a real tree in designated areas like the Ipo Watershed. Once you've earned enough green energy, you can plant a native tree like yakal or co-plant other trees with 10 other GCash Forest heroes.
Step 1: Log in to the GCash App, and tap on GForest.
Step 2: Read the GForest User Agreement, and tap on I Want to Help!
Allow GCash Access to your contacts list to use GCash Social Features (like Stealing Energy from friends and Co-Planting a tree with friends), and allow GCash access to your health app/fitness tracker to allow you to collect green energy every time you walk.
Step 3: Start collecting green energy!
Collect green energy to grow your plant! Whenever you do green or eco-friendly actions you will earn green energy. However, collect the energy as soon as possible as this will disappear after 24 hours.
