Forestry Investment in Reforestation by Publishers

TreeBanking buys deforested land plants teak trees for profitable investment for its investors and carbon offsets for the environment.

Shared investment in natural resource commodities isn't anything new. I recall that investment in cattle was being done twenty years ago...and of course there were the famous oil well investment ventures that crop up. But bringing those shared-investment opportunities to natural resources is a new twist. TreeBanking has launched a CO2 sequestering investment approach they call "profitable reforestation" that combines carbon offsets with financial investment. Many carbon offset approaches seem to be dumping your money into someone else's hole and you never see the results.

Here's information found on Tree Banking's website that explains this concept of "profitable reforestation."

Tree Banking Inc.

TreeBankingInc. allows you to invest in the reforestation of the planet by planting trees to replace those used in the printing of your book. This can be a true investment where you can make your money back at some point while replacing trees. The trees you purchase are planted on Finca Leola's plantations as rainforest reforestation projects. The first harvest is generally between 6 and 8 years. If the market is depressed one year, we can wait for a year or two, so that we don’t have to sell in a bad year. Trees Harvested: At the end of 25 years, all of the trees will have been harvested.

The Science Behind Carbon Sequestration in Teak Trees

One of the loudest arguments against using forestry to offset carbon is the claim that there is no real science to prove how much Carbon Dioxide trees actually absorb.

Part of the reason we've chosen teak trees as the foundation of our business is the fact that there has been so much research around them and the simple fact that they grow so fast.

When you Invest in Trees with TreeBankingInc.

The process begins with tree growers, Finca Leola, S.A., who purchase deforested land in Costa Rica. The land is legally "converted" to an ecological easement that specifies that the land can only be used for reforestation for 99 years (the same type of easement used by the Nature Conservancy).

In order to replant a rainforest, a pioneer species of Teak must first be planted to provide shade for native species that are accustomed to growing under the canopy of the rainforest.
