Current Progress

As of August 2022, the project has begun restoration activities at one of three planned properties. By December 2022, more than 115,000 trees will be planted with the support of 10 local team members.

Driven by Local Tradition

The project partners closely with local landowners, indigenous tribes and non-profit project developer Natureza Bela to honor local traditions and plant vegetation native to the Atlantic Forest region.

Benefits Go Beyond Carbon

Not only does Corredores Pau Brasil have powerful climate benefits, it also has an outsized impact on local communities and biodiversity. The project will provide livelihoods for 1,000 families, produce 100 species of native trees for planting, and monitor 40 species of fauna to guide corridor planning.

Pachama’s Technology

Using technology every step of the way, Pachama helps leading companies invest directly in high-quality reforestation projects with unprecedented transparency and accuracy. Pachama uses Light Detection and Ranging technology (LiDAR) to characterize the structure of the trees before planting, serving as a baseline for future carbon measurement. Pictured below is the LiDAR baseline gathered from the Fazenda Santa Rosa farm. Over the next few decades, remote sensing will be continuously deployed to measure forest growth and estimate the carbon sequestered.
