To give an idea of how the cost price of reforestation is determined, below you will find the calculation for the surface area of 1 football field (0.5 hectares).
|Purchase 1 soccer field worth of land||€ 2.000|
|410 cultivated trees||€ 410|
|Planting and maintenance for 10 years||€ 590|
|Total costs||€ 3.000|
Reforestation is more expensive than protecting existing jungle because no trees need to be planted/ maintained. For more information about the calculations please contact us.
There are two pillars for the purchase of land:
1. existing forest (to protect).
2. pasture land (for reforestation).
Our preference is to reforest pasture land, because that way we expand the amount of forest. And pasture land is easier to use than, for example, old palm oil plantations.
We buy existing forest if it is threatened by commercial activities (logging) and/or is located in a crucial place in the corridor. Usually a plot consists of both pasture land and forest, so we can serve both purposes in 1 sale.
Purchasing and protecting existing forest is cheaper than (labour-intensive) reforestation.
An average person emits 7.5 tons of CO₂ annually (transport & energy at home). [source].
Assuming 1 tree per 12m² and an annual CO₂ absorption of 30 kg per tree, compensation for 1 person requires 0.3 hectares of forest with 250 trees.
We use a cost price of € 1.95 per planted tree (excl. purchase of the land).
For more information view our CO₂ calculator.
Wish list for 2023
Objective: purchase and afforestation of 500 hectares of land.
Will you help? Below are a few opportunities!
This palm oil plantation is adjacent to our land. We want:
1. Show how to transform a palm oil plantation into a polyculture.
2. Use this piece of land for the connection of the ecoduct to be realized over the Pan American highway.
The plot is adjacent to our land. 'This neighboring piece of land is only for sale once' so this is an opportunity that we are happy to take advantage of!
Perhaps you can finance this together with your suppliers or customers?
This jungle plot is adjacent to the 23 acre plot. Both plots will contribute significantly to securing migratory routes for cats, prey and keeping poachers out.
This is an opportunity we don't want to pass up!
