Bamboo Reforestation Project
Arbré Technologies is helping take climate action and offset deforestation by providing the RFID tracking system 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, a Philippine local cooperative and the commercial arm of the Bukidnon Tagoloanon 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.
The RFID tracking system 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
