Our Impact

At BaumInvest
forest is not just forest!

Our forest combines economic aspects with ecological responsibility and social action – and thus creates added value at all levels. It not only preserves biodiversity and provides a new home for many animal and plant species, but also makes a major contribution to climate protection.

Forests store enormous amounts of climate-damaging carbon – with great potential for people, the environment and nature. And forests can do even more: they improve the quality of life for people in the region and enable the establishment and expansion of regional value chains. This makes forests a sensible investment in the future – and for the benefit of all.

The effects of the Forest

Soil
Your forest helps to make the soil fertile again and increase the diversity of the soil microbiome. In addition, it is also an enormous carbon store alongside the trees.
Water

Your forest helps to restore the water balance, which protects the region during dry periods.

Temperature
Your forest fixes CO2 and stores the carbon. In this way, it actively counteracts climate change. It also contributes to climate adaptation and its consequences by providing regional cooling.
Animals

Your forest forms a new ecosystem in which animals can reestablish themselves; a decisive contribution to the preservation of biodiversity.

Humans

The reforestation process as well as the continuous cultivation of the degraded land provides stable and sustainable job opportunities to support local economies.

Biodiversity – an “ace” of the forest

Did you know that the rainforests of Costa Rica are so-called biodiversity hotspots? Rainforests in general are home to 50% of all plant species, 55% of all clear water fish species, and 77% of all vertebrates we have found on our planet. Yet rainforests, which are biodiversity hotspots, make up only 1.4% of the earth’s surface.

Our reforestation area borders existing biodiversity corridors; an expansion of habitable areas for plants and animals alike.
The Almendro (Almond) tree is a good example of how our forest provides for its inhabitants. The fruits serve as a valuable food source for several animal species and the branches function as nesting spots for rare birds such as the Ara Ambiguus. We are very proud of the fact that our trees have allowed these rare birds, among others, to return and resettle on our Fincas.
We protect this ecosystem – verifiably.

Biodiversity monitoring agrees with us

Ever since we started our first reforestation project, we have closely monitored our impact on the diversity of species on our properties – specifically our natural reserves. Our collaboration with Senckenberg Institute has allowed us to do this effectively.
The results: the number of reptile and amphibian species found on our properties was confirmed to have increased from 20 to 90 within only 9 years.
Our Forest ecosystems promote growth of individual populations and the general genetic diversity present in our Fincas and the surrounding land. On the same land that cattle grazed on, you can now see strolling tapirs, singing toucans and the nearly-invisible pumas.

Social value – local acceptance of BaumInvest

Involving the local population is the best way to protect the forest.
The expansion of value chains around the harvesting and processing of wood are just two examples of many that show how our forest project attracts further value creation in the region and generates income. But our mixed forest also significantly improves the quality of life in other ways.

For example, we protect an important local water source on our Finca La Virgen. And last but not least, the entire region benefits from an improved climate: with its cooling effect, the forest mitigates the increasingly hot dry seasons – the cycle of nature, yields and social impact remains intact.

The local population is involved in our projects - this is how we create real social added value
