We are an applied research and demonstration organization working to mitigate global warming through sustainable forestry and long-term, verifiable carbon sequestration.

Our 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.

We have over two decades of experience in tropical forest R&D under the UNFCCC AIJ pilot phase framework and were a partner of the original United Nations Billion Tree Campaign.
