About Community Carbon Trees

Community Carbon Trees plants biodiverse tropical forests to grow our global community. We connect you with the men and women from local communities in Costa Rica who are paid to plant trees. Our mission is to combat climate change, create resilient community economics and to grow biodiverse habitats.

About this Campaign

We are focused on continued work in 3 different communities.
Our funding must be at a minimum of $30,000 to replicate to a new community.

We have two new communities awaiting our process of capacity building, tree seed collection, tree nursery building and education for production of trees. Capacity building for local women to make compost for the tree nursery is carried out and all compost is paid for by the Association out of donation money.

We also build capacity to self administrate within the community and follow our process of in house electronic receipt training and management.
We must interview and scout farms of interested farmers and make maps of the reforestation zones and species selection.

From there we train workers to prepare the land and plant trees.
Transport must be paid for and all fences built to remove cows and protect the baby trees. At least 13 separate maintenance episodes are carried out with full labor and transport paid for all workers plus follow up supervision by ACCT principals. Follow up accounting for all trees in included plus fertilisers.

When we give back to the rain forest on the equator, we are literally helping ourselves and our future generations breathe.
