Reforest the Tropics (RTT) aims to offset US-generated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by planting new tropical forests. With donations from US sponsors, we work with participating farmers to reforest tropical pastures, sequester carbon, and reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases.
Reforest the Tropics is an applied research organization working to mitigate global warming through sustainable forestry and long-term, verifiable carbon sequestration. We have over 50 years experience in research of tropical forestry plantations, and working with farmers. Reforest The Tropics was approved to manage a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Activities Implemented Jointly project in November 1995.
The RTT Model
RTT presently balances the CO2 emissions of over 70 participants with more than 338 acres of carbon-offset forests on 8 farms in Costa Rica. We manage forests for individuals and organizations including for the Superior Nut Company, Connecticut College, the Home Depot, the Mohegan Sun Casino, the Foley Family, the Curtis Packaging Company, the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Cooperative, and the Triumvirate Environmental Corporation, among others…
Offset the CO2 emissions of your business, organization, school, or home by sponsoring a forest with Reforest the Tropics. Donations to RTT are tax deductible.
