What's it about


ArBolivia is an alternative business initiative to promote reforestation and fair trade. The initiative seeks practical solutions to worldwide increasing deforestation, climate change, and poverty in development countries.

ArBolivia will reforest 6,000 hectares in the subtropical lowlands of the Amazon Basin in Bolivia through small-scale forestry plantations with local farm families, using almost entirely native tree species. It includes the on-farm establishment of ecological corridors, protective plantations as well as sustainable agricultural land use.

The initiative is the first in its kind to implement reforestation through an association between local smallholders and outside ethical investors. To alleviate the initial investments, financial revenues are obtained as well through Environmental Services, given that every tree planted contributes to the environment and the conservation of soils, watersheds and biodiversity.
