The mission of the project is to provide forest dwellers in central Mexico the tools to emerge from poverty while helping the environment. GTIC is a project to plant millions of resinous pine trees in Indian communities in Mexico. The resin tapped from the pines will be an important source of income to the forest dwellers—and an incentive to protect these trees. It is a win-win-win solution for forest dwellers, the environment and industry.
