What trees are we planting?
Your trees are part of a project to restore forests in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia: a tropical region of critical global importance.
Together with the local population, we plant native trees in vulnerable areas of the region to restore the ecosystem balance.
Plant your trees online and receive one or a mixture of the following species.
Caoba is a central American mahogany variety and the most important hardwood species of the Neotropic. Almost all of the commercially sold Caoba comes from wild forests, which is what is limiting the capacity of this species to reproduce and threatening its existence.
The Soursop tree is a tropical fruit variety with multiple nutrition and medicinal properties. This tree, in its native variety, represents an integrative income source for local farmers and acts as an incentive to plant trees on deforested land.
The Yellow Ceiba is fast-growing tropical tree species with long roots reaching deep into the ground. The Ceiba tree can grow up to 40 meters high and helps also for this reason to control soil erosion.
The avocado tree is very common throughout Latin America. Avocados are native to this region and represent an important source of food and income for the rural communities who take part in our projects.
The Tambor tree is a fast-growing tropical species native to this region. Being a leguminose, it helps to fix nitrogen into the soil. Tambor is a pioneer tree species that can grow up to 7 meters high during its first year and creates shadow with its large branches.
The Cocoa tree is crucial to the indigenous cultures of the Neotropics. The production of native cocoa is an important economic alternative and source of employment for local farmers. The shade of the forest is essential to the cocoa tree, making it a perfect ally of the sustainable farmer at the tropics.
The Algarrobo is a forest tree species native to the region that produces a fruit resembling the Mediterranean carob. Its lush branches create shade, protect soils, and water courses. It’s fruit is a source of food to the local fauna.
Coffee is a perennial shrub commonly farmed in the region that feeds a local industry recognized on the main international markets. Even if technically not a tree, the coffee plant needs the forest shade to grow and produce quality fruits. It is for this reason that coffee is a perfect ally for the sustainable farmer at the tropics.
