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 a decade of experience in tropical forest R&D under the UNFCCC AIJ pilot phase framework.
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.
