TIST/USAID: The International Small Group and Tree Planting Program. Angela Costallo, at MREA Energy Fair, showed us her database of 11 million trees! She scrolled thru the list on her iPad showing us the location, age, and type of each tree listed. The trees are improving the livelihoods of rural communities and enabling them to enter the global carbon market. They earn income by planting and maintaining each tree. Many grow nurseries.
