For each tree


When you acquire one of our silver and gems trees, you are helping us to plant new alive ones. As you know, Mane Antu is devoting part of their incomes to reforestation projects in Costa Rica. The project aims to protect and restore the local rainforest from the aggressive deforestation that these areas have been submitted.
The forestry model farm project run by Desarrollos Sostenibles Selva Talamanca, is planting many endangered native species, in finca Noneco at Esperaza de Atirro in Turrialba, Costa Rica.  This model organic farm is intended to be a reservoir of botanical species, as well as serve as a nursery to nurture with native species the future reforestation of the area. Mane Antu is always open to consider new projects to contribute with, so if you have any proposal, please, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Among the species to be planted:

-Níspero (Manilklra Chicle)

-Cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa)

-Caoba (Swetenia macrophylla)

-Ron-ron (Astronium graveolens)

-Guapinol (Hymenea courbaril)

-Ciprecillo (Escallonia mytilloides)

-Mora (Maclura tinctoria)

-Tempisque (Sideroxylon capiri)

-Chirraco (Myroxylon balsarum)

-Cristóbal (Platymiscium pinnatum)

-Cachimbo (Platysmiscium parviflorum)

-…and many more

We love trees, and we believe in the reasons:


Here are 22 of the best reasons to plant and care for trees or defend a tree’s standing:

Trees combat the greenhouse effect

Global warming is the result of excess greenhouse gases, created by burning fossil fuels and destroying tropical rainforests. Heat from the sun, reflected back from the earth, is trapped in this thickening layer of gases, causing global temperatures to rise. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major greenhouse gas. Trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car 26,000 miles.

Trees clean the air

Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.

Trees provide oxygen

In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.

Trees cool the streets and the city

Average temperatures  have risen 6°F in the last 50 years as tree coverage has declined and the number of heat-absorbing roads and buildings has increased.

Trees cool the city by up to 10°F, by shading our homes and streets, breaking up urban “heat islands” and releasing water vapor into the air through their leaves.

Trees conserve energy

Three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can cut summer air conditioning needs by up to 50 percent. By reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants.

Trees save water

Shade from trees slows water evaporation from thirsty lawns. Most newly planted trees need only fifteen gallons of water a week. As trees transpire, they increase atmospheric moisture.

Trees help prevent water pollution

Trees reduce runoff by breaking rainfall thus allowing the water to flow down the trunk and into the earth below the tree. This prevents stormwater from carrying pollutants to the ocean. When mulched, trees act like a sponge that filters this water naturally and uses it to recharge groundwater supplies.

Trees help prevent soil erosion

On hillsides or stream slopes, trees slow runoff and hold soil in place.

Trees shield  from ultra-violet rays

Skin cancer. trees reduce UV-B exposure by about 50 percent, thus providing protection to children on school campuses and playgrounds – where children spend hours outdoors.

Trees provide food

An apple tree can yield up to 15-20 bushels of fruit per year and can be planted on the tiniest urban lot. Aside from fruit for humans, trees provide food for birds and wildlife.

Trees heal

Studies have shown that patients with views of trees out their windows heal faster and with less complications. Children with ADHD show fewer symptoms when they have access to nature. Exposure to trees and nature aids concentration by reducing mental fatigue.

Trees reduce violence

Neighborhoods and homes that are barren have shown to have a greater incidence of violence in and out of the home than their greener counterparts. Trees and landscaping help to reduce the level of fear.

Trees mark the seasons

Is it winter, spring, summer or fall? Look at the trees.

Trees create economic opportunities

Fruit harvested from community orchards can be sold, thus providing income. Small business opportunities in green waste management and landscaping arise when cities value mulching and its water-saving qualities. Vocational training for youth interested in green jobs is also a great way to develop economic opportunities from trees.

Trees are teachers and playmates

Whether as houses for children or creative and spiritual inspiration for adults, trees have provided the space for human retreat throughout the ages.

Trees bring diverse groups of people together

Tree plantings provide an opportunity for community involvement and empowerment that improves the quality of life in our neighborhoods. All cultures, ages, and genders have an important role to play at a tree planting or tree care event.

Trees add unity

Trees as landmarks can give a neighborhood a new identity and encourage civic pride.

Trees provide a canopy and habitat for wildlife

Sycamore and oak are among the many urban species that provide excellent urban homes for birds, bees, possums and squirrels.

Trees block things

Trees can mask concrete walls or parking lots, and unsightly views. They muffle sound from nearby streets and freeways, and create an eye-soothing canopy of green. Trees absorb dust and wind and reduce glare.

Trees provide wood

In suburban and rural areas, trees can be selectively harvested for fuel and craft wood.

Trees increase property values

The beauty of a well-planted property and its surrounding street and neighborhood can raise property values by as much as 15 percent.

Trees increase business traffic

Studies show that the more trees and landscaping a business district has, the more business will flow in. A tree-lined street will also slow traffic – enough to allow the drivers to look at the store fronts instead of whizzing by.

 Trees make flow inner-peace

As human, we evolved for most of our filogenetic history in forest areas. Our brain-mind is build on in contact with natural enviroments. Trees awakes our ancestral memory, we feel confortable and peacefull next to a tree.

We are back!!

2008-01-01 00.00.00-165_1024Hello Dears!

We apologize.

Due to problems with our hosting service our Web page was down for the last four days.

Yes, right, we could not work on Black Friday!

Although we worked very hard during the previous week, and although we were very excited to open and offer our art in silver to all of you on Black Friday,  events sometimes are not fortunate, and our effort was not enough to be ready and working on that date, sometimes events are out of control.

So, after our disappointment, we learnt an important lesson.  We  have built our website more solid,  now we a ready again.

We we’d like to maintain our offer, so we will be giving for free traditional kimono silk bags with every piece purchased during this week, and also,  we’ll be still shipping for free anywhere you are ordering from.

Thanks for your patient, and sorry again.
