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
Water: 760 litres | CO2: 7 tonnes

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.
