- CommuniTree has paid over $2.2 million to more than 1,300 farming families.
- It’s planted more than 10 million trees over the equivalent of 5,000+ hectares, making it the largest reforestation initiative in Nicaragua.
- 1,518,386 tonnes of projected CO2 removals (aka carbon offsets).

Tracking Every Farmer, Dollar, Tonne, Tree, and Hectare…
In 2020, CommuniTree continued making great progress with its FARM-TRACE tracking software. Developed in collaboration with the University of British Columbia, FARM-TRACE empowers project supporters to delve into ALL aspects of the project’s activity since inception, including farmer info and tree locations. It has to be seen to be believed! As noted in the annual report, FARM-TRACE has now been rolled out in 8 other countries and is on track become an official monitoring approach under the Plan Vivo Foundation Carbon Standard, the oldest forest carbon standard in the world.
We met Roger Antonio Valladarez Garcia during our project visit in 2016, and below is his FARM-TRACE dashboard snapshot as of today.
