let's get acquainted closer

What is Ticorico?

The vision of TicoRico is challenging but very simply described.

Under the clear definition of “save nature – create resources” we are building a nature conservation project, which starts at one of the most important points of all. The conservation of nature – “save nature”.

Nature conservation in many projects is like a “bottomless pit” – if the basis is not protected, every effort of reforestation is seen as short term and not sustainable. The broad of a nature conservation is not only a simple “I plant a tree” but a much deeper concern to preserve and regenerate the ecosystem nature with its diversity.

The best thing about it is: stock protection is the basis for CO2 bonding.

Defined goal: Restoration of a primary forest structure

Since time immemorial, we humans have cut down more trees worldwide than we have planted new ones, destroying more resources than we have restored. Unfortunately, this fact has not changed until today, although by now every child knows that forests are essential for survival and can do more than create space for pasture or serve our consumption in the form of paper furniture and much more. Shockingly, since the dawn of civilization, man has destroyed nearly 50 percent of the world’s tree cover, at the same time destroying animal habitats and entire ecosystems and wiping out countless species of plants and animals.

Nature is not helped in the long run by projects whose structure is based on economic pillars. Knowing that the industrial use of nature is of ecological importance and therefore absolutely necessary, the regeneration of nature in all its areas requires much more attention. The healthy nature is not helped by monocultures in plantation style whose industrial processing is pre-planned, but only projects that structurally invest in the reproduction of nature.

Together with our partners and you, our goal is to regenerate the cycle of nature through long-term or permanent conservation.

The protection especially of tropical rainforests like in Costa Rica is an international responsibility. Every year, more than 12 million hectares of forest are lost in the tropics. The main reason for this enormous deforestation is the high demand in Europe, especially Germany, but also in the whole world for tropical precious woods and for products for which trees have to give way.

This is exactly the problem we will tackle.

Currently, we have an area of almost 1 million square meters (about 100 hectares) under our patronage as part of the project in Costa Rica. With the help of land sponsorships, reforestation and renaturation, the tree population is to be protected, expanded and new habitats for animals and plants created on a permanent basis.

“TicoRico” therefore serves no commercial purpose, but is a non-profit environmental protection project with the aim of reviving nature to its fullest extent and strengthening the region and its people. The areas are to remain a permanently untouched area, where life and nature organize themselves on their own. In the future, further areas are to be developed within the project. In close cooperation with the communities and municipalities, the local people shall also participate in the revenues within the project. This should, among other things, create the possibility for Ticos with land ownership to protect and reforest their areas themselves, instead of selling the land to “robbery” investors – which is unfortunately not uncommon at the moment due to the economic situation of many Ticos.

With any kind of sponsorship you support our work and share our vision of nature conservation.

Choose in the first step which category warms your heart and is suitable for you. You can support us as a private person, as a company or as a company with marketing rights.

For your sponsorship you have the choice between the two basic categories “Landscape” or “Landscape + Water Sources”.
optionally you have the possibility to plant one or more trees in each category.

The monthly donation for your sponsorship depends on the chosen basic category and is based on a plot size of 10 m2, 100 m2 or 1000 m2 with the respective quantity specification you can define the exact area.

Decide yourself about the period of your sponsorship. You can choose between the periods of 1 year, 3 years, 5 years or 10 years.

Plant a tree on your land area

For a one-time fee of 39 USD/EUR you can have a tree of your choice planted on your land area. We will take care of the growing, planting and maintenance for you.

An overview of the sponsorships and their contributions can be found here.

At the end you can choose the way of payment: you can either pay annually in or the total amount for the sponsorship in one sum. For this you can use the known payment methods.

After your booking you will receive a personal booking confirmation and further information.

From then on you are a TicoRico sponsor.

Calculator

Why conservation is so important. Calculate it yourself

The CO2 sequestration of a tropical tree develops over the years of its life as follows:

  • Juvenile growth (0-5 years): During the first years of a tropical tree’s life, it usually grows quite rapidly. A tree can sequester between 1 and 5 kilograms of CO2 per year during this time, depending on the species and growing conditions.
  • Mature phase (5-20 years): During this phase, tree growth continues to sequester CO2, but at a slower rate compared to the juvenile phase. A tropical tree can sequester between 5 and 15 kilograms of CO2 per year during this period.
  • Adulthood (20-50+ years): A mature tropical tree can typically sequester between 10 and 25 kilograms of CO2 per year. CO2 sequestration peaks during this time and remains relatively stable.

Conclusion: on average, a tropical tree will gain 1 kg of CO2 sequestration per year up to the age of 25 and then remain relatively stable. Of course, this is somewhat variable depending on the tree species. But it clearly shows how important conservation is as a basis for the preservation of nature. With annual clearing (internationally estimated) of approx. 10 million hectares of mixed forests (tree age 15-20 years and older) it is easy to calculate how many new trees have to be planted to compensate this directly. That is why the protection of existing trees is so elementary important.

SPONSORSHIP

Support our Projects
Who can Participate

How to support

our project in different ways.

Sponsorships:
With a sponsorship you show an awareness for nature and protect an important habitat for plants and animals. You can decide on the size of the land area or the extent of the sponsorship yourself. There are pure land areas available or also land areas with the so important water sources. In addition, we offer the possibility of renaturation – give a new life “a tree” its name. Nature will thank you for it.
Investors:
As an investor you have the possibility to give something back to nature and help to realize our vision faster. This is not an investment on an economic basis but an investment to give something back to the world “without replacement” as it corresponds to our own philosophy. Together we create something great.
Crowdfunding:
Our Project TicoRico “social” offers purposeful the possibility of a donation Crowdfunding. One of our other priorities is to invest in education, culture, children and infrastructure. For this purpose we invest from the income of the project in different areas. Some of these projects require enormous efforts for realization, mostly financial efforts that we alone and in cooperation with the communities and municipalities can not handle. With risk-free crowdfunding, you can make targeted donations to specific areas so that they can be realized together.

CREATE RESSOURCES

"Create Ressources" is our vision to give back to nature - something that we consume in everyday life without replacement. It is no secret that the global destruction of rainforest is damaging the cycle of nature. Our goal is to accelerate the renaturation through our project and to re-create a primary forest-like structure. Based on our "Save Nature" project, it includes the planting of native tree species, some of which are threatened with extinction or even no longer exist regionally. We and you are recreating nature. But it is important to understand how this reforestation has to take place. In order to reach our goal as quickly as possible and naturally, we work with local and experienced partners who have the necessary know-how. You can find out how reforestation works in our knowledge library. The general planting time in Costa Rica is the end of the dry season, this varies a bit but usually it is end of April/beginning of May every year. This is when the natural conditions are best for seeding. In advance, the trees/plants are grown as seedlings in suitable greenhouses and later released at the beginning of the planting season. Of course, each tree needs its own space to develop and flourish to its full glory, so it is necessary to provide the optimal area for successful growth. Therefore, please do not be surprised that if you want to support us, it will happen that depending on the selection of the desired tree, the corresponding footprint will be automatically adjusted.
