Fighting Climate Change with Trees

Deforestation is the cause of ten percent of greenhouse gas emissions. Over the course of their lifespans, the trees we plant will remove 85,000 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Trees Where
They're Needed Most

Tropical forests take up only 6% of the world’s surface area, yet contain one-half to three-quarters of plant and animal species. That's something worth preserving!

We are planting trees in two tropical forest areas:

  • San Martin Province, Peru, in the upper part of the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. Home to many plant and animal species, this region is being rapidly deforested due to logging, mining, agriculture and an influx of settlers.
  • Sayaxche, in Peten Department, Guatemala. The rainforest here is rapidly being cut down for large-scale agriculture, oil exploration, and mining.

Healing the Earth,
Helping People

Reforest'Action has chosen to use the Maya nut tree for both the Guatemala and Peru reforestation projects. The trees will be planted by local indigenous communities (in partnership with the Maya Nut Institute), who will eventually harvest, market, and eat the nuts. A traditional part of Mayan forest gardens, the Maya nut tree is more valuable alive, as a food source, than cut for timber. Once trees have matured, one hectare of land can provide $15,000 of revenue per year. This will help ensure that the forests we plant will grow and thrive long into the future.

The
Maya Nut Tree

  • Mature Maya nut (Brosimum aicastrum) trees can grow up to 40m tall and more than 2m in diameter.
  • The fruit, leaves, flowers, and buds are the favored food of 85% of tropical birds and mammals, such as the howler monkey.
  • They are considered a keystone species for protection of biodiversity in the tropics.
