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 mission is to make a tangible contribution to global sustainability through environmental education and applied research on carbon-offset farm forests in the tropics. We link U.S. emitter communities with farmers and their forests.
The RTT Model
Reforest the Tropics (RTT) aims to offset US-generated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by planting new tropical forests in Costa Rica. With donations from US sponsors, we work with participating Costa Rican farmers to reforest tropical pastures, sequester carbon, and reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases.
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…
