Curiosity about me

The important moments in your tree's life.

Let's start with introductions

The Cacao tree is an evergreen that produces small, five-petal flowers that are white, green, or rose-hued and sprout directly on the trunk or principal branches. The lucky flowers develop into the celebrated cocoa pods. It is planted for high quality cocoa bean production and to provide local farmers with an additional source of income.

My significance

Sweetness

Even things that seem bitter hide a sweet side.

How much CO2 I’ll absorb

My estimated CO2 absorption capacity is based on the first 10 years of my life*

Current absorption

- 5 kg

2022

0 kg

2032

-55 kg

* The tree will continue to absorb CO2 even after the tenth year. Therefore this is a prudent estimate.
