We have extraordinary advances with fast growing species, which have made tree planting an attractive economic activity. Because of this, every year farmers plant over 85.000 trees in agroforestry systems reinvesting Environmental Payments from the Costa Rican government, creating a win-win system where not only greenhouse gas emissions are offset, but also poor farmers can earn income from the trees and crops, with technical support from the organization. Each year we try to reach out to more families, planting more trees.
