Tornillo Tree

Sponsoring trees funds communities whose rainforest is at risk from loggers. It helps villages invest in sustainable livelihoods that depend on the forest being kept standing.

Scientific Name: Cedrelinga catenaeformis | Common names: Peruvian Pine, Huayracaspi
Height: up to 35 m | Width: up to 2m

Notes: Its wood is light to golden brown. It’s used for furniture, turned objects, construction, and paper (pulpwood). It’s the most sought after wood in our partnerships in the Peruvian Amazon, and demand for it puts pressure on communities to sell their trees.

Partnership Supported: Asháninka

What you receive: A personalised, downloadable certificate, an online profile, and updates about the partnership you’ve supported.

Sponsoring a tree with Cool Earth is just one way we package your support. Cool Earth does not buy land or trees from our community partners and therefore cannot sell them to our supporters.
Instead, the money from tree sponsorship goes towards Cool Earth’s essential rainforest conservation projects around the world.
