From cotton and cattle to precious woods in Colombia
About the project:
In Magdalena, Colombia, 12Tree is investing in a 1,068-hectare farm that has been poorly maintained. With fields previously used for cotton farming and cattle grazing, La Gloria will now produce a high-quality teak plantation. Investment from 12Tree means applying best practices, investing in infrastructure and developing local educational programs. However, 12Tree will introduce native species to the land and thus enhance biodiversity. The plantation is FSC certified and is sequestering 20,000 tons of CO2 annually. 12Tree is aiming to increase this capacity even further.
