Bamboo Reforestation Project

Arbré Technologies is helping take climate action and offset deforestation by providing the tracking tags and software for giant bamboo being planted on nearly 4,000 acres on the Philippine island of Mindanao.

The company is a subcontractor on a USAID-funded contract awarded to BUKTAMACO, the commercial arm of the Bukidnon Tagolaonan tribe. They are teaming up with Rizome Bamboo, a U.S.-based bamboo construction materials company.

The project delivers against several United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, and is the first emissions-reduction project working with bamboo at scale.

Arbré Technologies was brought into the  project because of the company’s experience providing RFID-based tracking systems for horticulture businesses and the bamboo industry in particular.

Tags and readers from Arbré Technologies will:

  • Generate the data to help determine the amount of carbon offsets the project produces
  • Identify optimal plants 
  • Provide data on processing efficiency and other measurements
  • And much more
