The inspiring people who use our online study room have used @forest_app to help boost their productivity. Planting virtual trees supports motivation and creates another way in which a sense of being together is formed. Wonderfully, planting virtual trees can also lead to the planting of real trees. It was a honour to receive a list of the 20 trees that the PHDForum planted during the first year of our online study room. That will continue to benefit the planet and communities long after we are no longer here.
