Species Info

Tectona grandis is planted on less than 40% of the plantation. The rest are native species including:

  • Hyeronima alchernoides
  • Terminalia amazonia
  • Dipteryx panamensis
  • Bombacopsis quinata


  • The mission of this project is to reforest degraded pastureland with a mixture of native tree species and Teak in Panama, to produce fine tropical timber, enrich the soil, save and filter water, and sequester carbon and contribute to the mitigation of the green house effect.
  • The project is based on the model of, ForestFinance, which combines timber production with biodiversity protection and ecosystem restoration.
  • The first trees of the project CO2OL Tropical Mix were planted in 2007 and the project will be CarbonFIX certified and CCBA validated in February 2011.
  • The future plans are to expand upon the plantation and to combine projects with the CO2OL Native Tree Species project.
