We are growing HUGE Trees to Recycle CO2, O2 &H2O

Did you know that  Mother Nature provides us with amazing GREEN technology to absorb huge amounts of CO2 while producing O2 for breathing and clean water for drinking and healthy rain cycles? Yes!! Trees planted and grown on the Equator are better than any man made invention so far for environmental services. Equator trees also provide us with amazing food stuffs we all love, plus they feed the animals and regenerate the soils. 

We have been returning this dry season to many mature projects that continue to grow. The CO2 absorption and benefits are maximized every single year the trees keep getting bigger. How rewarding it has been to measure our trees from so many older projects. You may have sponsored a tree in one of these so many years ago.  Just take a look at some 12 and 16 year old forests we have grown together pictured below.

We are so honored and proud to report as well that the past director of the Carbon Nuetral Unit Earth University has been helping us to take tree measurements for applying for third party carbon certification. Our trees are finally big enough to JUSTIFY the massive amount of field and office work required to make carbon cewrtification make sense. We can share the benefits with our Costa Rican family farmers as well and help to generate a circulr economoy that will give back to everyone including the families,the fora and fauna, as well as the organization itself. We can generate more corporate and business style sponsorships with an internationally recognized CO2 certification. It's quite an expensive process, both in terms of time and money to do this carbon measuring  work, but with the partnership of our MENTOR,  this gargantuan task is more  attainable because we will delegate this process to his expert management.

Plus, we are including our community youth in the process, the TREENAGERS, to help with some of the measuring and to work with the field biologists and agro foresters calculating the CO2 and other benefits resulting from the successful long term reforestation.  We like to incorporate some environmental education "citizen science" to benefit the expansion of young minds in a hands on way.

Thank you again for you constant support. Everything we do for the trees and with collaboration of our community is an act of love and dedication and we cannot do it without you and GlobalGiving.
