Plant a tree, Panama

2,75 trees were planted in an area of 25m2 for every tons offset. Furthermore 14 m2 conservation area is protected.

 

Over 9,3 million trees planted so far.

The project covers an area of 133km2 (13.242 ha) – the size of 18.600 football pitches.

15 endangered species on the Red List find a habitat.

 

Degraded land, originally forest land, later used for extensive cattle ranching, is reforested with mostly native tree species and gradually converted into mixed forests. The project provides for sustainable timber production and cocoa cultivation; it protects biodiversity and restores a healthy forest ecosystem.

Further details:

Sustainable forest management and cocoa production offer employment opportunities, therefore improve the economic and social situation of rural communities and families. Moreover, the project helps to promote mutual learning and knowledge transfer.
This project has been one of the first in line to be successfully certified under the renowned Gold Standard for land use and forestry projects; the cocoa production areas have been the first agroforestry systems to be certified under the Gold Standard.

 

Social benefits:

  • Long-term and fair employment for local communities (more than 150 jobs created so far)

  • Sustainable sources of income: sale of certified tropical timber, carbon credits, cocoa and seed material

  • Supporting local schools with financial programs and educational materials.

Ecological values:

  • Reforestation with 20 native tree species and protecting more than 30 other tree species

  • Biodiversity “hotspot”- home to 15 endangered and vulnerable animal species, including brown-throated sloths and anteaters

  • >25% of project area is under special protection as conservation area

  • Creating ecological corridors between different project locations
