Mr. Rolando Camacho is a talented, hardworking Costa Rican that watches over the RTT carbon-offset forests. This picture, taken in the forest established for Marco & Dorla Barres of Jewitt City, Connecticut, shows a 3-year old planting of Klinkii trees. The forest, designed to offset 25 tonnes of CO2 annually in a 25-year contract, is on the outskirts of the town of Turrialba. Also in this forest are Mahogany trees. The farm is owned by CATIE (Center for Higher Education & Agricultural Research), a cooperator with three RTT projects. The forest manager is Marvin Hernandez. 12Jun08
