ECO2 Forests Opens Tree Propagation Facility in Australia

SACRAMENTO, CA and QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2009) - ECO2 Forests Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ECOF), an international sustainable forestry company focused on reforestation and carbon sequestration projects, has commenced tree propagation at their newly acquired Research and Development Center (RDC) in SE Queensland, Australia.

The multi-purpose facility, located in Jimboomba, Queensland, will help ensure ECO2 Forests remains at the forefront of sustainable reforestation technology and continues to maximize the environmental and economic output of the Company.

The first stage, currently underway at the RDC, involves the growth of various strains of Kiri Tree nursery stock for upcoming reforestation projects in the Asia Pacific region and Australia.

"This Research and Development Centre allows ECO2 Forests to test and evolve our Kiri Tree as well as other species in a variety of planting, growing and operational techniques to ensure the company is continually positioned to implement optimal reforestation strategies for each particular project.

"Operationally, it plays a vital role as one of our nursery production facilities for ECO2 Forests projects in the Asia Pacific region and will be our central training center for employees," COO Ray Smith said today.

Located just one hour from the Australian office, the RDC also doubles as a small-scale reforestation demonstration site for investors, partners and government agencies, providing them with the opportunity to view first hand all stages of an ECO2 Forests reforestation project.

"The facility will feature all stages of the forests growth cycle at the one location. This will include trees in their first growth season to trees at full harvest maturity. We have planned the planting process specifically so at any time visitors can see how the entire reforestation process works, employees can be trained in all areas and stages of the Global Forestry Plan and our researchers can conduct more in depth Research, Development and advance planting dynamics," Smith added.
