    Established since 1969, in Itacoatiara/AM, on the banks of the AM-010 highway, Agropecuária Aruanã began its activities with the implementation of pastures for cattle raising. Owner of a 12 thousand hectare property, his original plan was to use 6 thousand ha (50% of the property, as at the time the forestry code allowed this proportion of Multiple Use Area – AUM). However, after transforming 1,500 ha into pastures, Aruanã voluntarily decided to cease livestock farming and begin the opposite process: reforestation with chestnut trees (Bertholletia excelsa).

    With approximately 1,400 hectares of plantations of mainly chestnut trees and some “perimeters” (plots) of other species, such as: cumaru (Dipteryx odorata). The property has the largest reforestation of chestnut trees in the Amazon (possibly in Brazil). The main scope of the project is the generation of carbon credits by: a. Avoided Emissions (waiver of the right to deforest AUM); B. Reduced Emissions (change in land use, from pasture to forests); and c. Sequestered Emissions (planting stocks exceed the original stock). The mere continuity of almond harvesting activities, even without revenue from carbon credits, proves that well-executed REDD+ projects produce excellent results, with low risk and attractive economic returns.
