ITEM 1.  BUSINESS
 
General
 
Tree Top Industries, Inc. (“TTI”, “Tree Top”, “we”. “our”, “us”, “the Company”, “management”) is a Nevada corporation which has been operating under several different names since 1980.
 
Western Exploration, Inc., a Nevada corporation, was formed on July 24, 1980. In 1990, Western Exploration, Inc. changed its name to Nugget Exploration, Inc. On November 10, 1999, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nugget Exploration, Inc., Nugget Holdings Corporation merged with and into GoHealthMD, Inc., a Delaware corporation. Shortly thereafter, Nugget Exploration, Inc. changed its name to GoHealthMD, Inc. a Nevada corporation.
 
On August 18, 2004, GoHealthMD, Inc., the Nevada Corporation, changed its name to Tree Top Industries, Inc. GoHealthMD, Inc. continues to exist as a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Tree Top Industries, Inc. MLN, Inc., BioEnergy Applied Technologies, Inc. (“BAT”), Eye Care Centers International, Inc., GoHealthMD Nano Pharmaceuticals, Inc., TTI Strategic Acquisitions and Equity Group, Inc. and TTII Oil & Gas, Inc., a Delaware corporation are also wholly-owned subsidiaries of Tree Top Industries, Inc. Several of these subsidiaries have been formed by Tree Top in the anticipation of technologies, products or services being acquired. Not all subsidiaries are currently active.
 
Effective August 12, 2009, Tree Top completed a stock exchange with BAT, BioEnergy Systems Management Inc., Wimase Limited and Energetic Systems Inc., LLC. whereby Tree Top acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding stock of BAT.  BAT is the originator of various proprietary, clean-tech, environmentally friendly technologies and intellectual properties in the areas of hazardous waste destruction, energetic materials, chemical recycling processes, and coal gasification. BAT also maintains unique electrolytic technology that simplifies the production of bio fuels, specifically biodiesel and its byproducts.  Tree Top acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of BAT. Tree Top issued 35,000 shares of its common stock, par value $.001 per share, to the stockholders of BAT in exchange for the transfer of all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of BAT by such stockholders.
 
The Company also owns NetThruster, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“NetThruster”), which was formally known as Ludicrous, Inc. (“Ludicrous”). On January 28, 2011, the Board of Directors of Tree Top adopted resolutions approving the disposition by the Company of all of the common stock of its wholly-owned subsidiary, NetThruster, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“NetThruster Delaware”), in a spin-off to Tree Top’s shareholders on a pro rata basis (the “Spin-Off”). Thereafter, NetThruster Delaware would be owned by Tree Top’s shareholders. David Reichman, the CEO of Tree Top was named Chairman of the Board, CEO and CFO of NetThruster Delaware. Kathy M. Griffin was named a Director and corporate secretary. The Board of Directors of NetThruster Delaware is comprised of David Reichman and Kathy Griffin. On February 9, 2011, Tree Top entered into a distribution agreement with NetThruster Delaware (the “Distribution Agreement”). The Spin-Off is governed by the Distribution Agreement. A copy of the Distribution Agreement is attached by reference. The Spin-Off was disclosed in a Form 8-K, filed on February 9, 2011, which announced that the NetThruster division would be spun-off into a separate entity.  Subsequenlty, management and the board of directors agreed to postpone the spin-off indefinitely
 
  
On May 25, 2011, Tree Top signed a licensing agreement with WorldWithoutBlindness (“WWB”) for the right to market and sell their patented eye screening equipment on a global basis outside the United States, for a period of two years. Eye Care Centers International, Inc , was formed to support the further growth and development of (“WWB”), an organization whose primary mission is to bring patented eye screening equipment to the developing world. The WWB technology uses objective parameters instead of traditional subjective eye chart examinations, to screen children as young as six months old. This agreement was extended an additional two years through May 25, 2015.
 
On December 31, 2012, Tree Top and its new subsidiary, TTII Oil & Gas, Inc., a Delaware corporation, signed a binding asset purchase agreement with American Resource Technologies, Inc. (“ARUR”), a Kansas corporation, to acquire all of the assets of ARUR for a purchase price of $513,538, which was paid in the form of shares of Tree Top’s common stock as described in the asset purchase agreement, which was disclosed in a Form 8 – K and is attached as an exhibit incorporated by reference.  Subsequent to the Company’s purchase of the assets and the termination of the operator, a mechanics lien was filed against the property claiming approximately $267,000 in fees are due to the previous operator. At December 31, 2012, due to the lien, the Company impaired the recorded cost, leaving no value associated with the acquisition. See Note 11 for detail of the assets acquired from ARUR.   An action is pending in the District Court of Chautauqua County, Kansas, captioned Aesir Energy, Inc. vs. Amercian Resource Technologies, Inc.; Nancy Ownbey Archer; Jimmy Stephen Ownbey; Robbie Faye Butts; Tree Top Industries, Inc.; and TTII oil & Gas, Inc. Management intends to vigorously contest AESIR’s claims and, at this point, settlement appears unlikely. It has been presented in the County Court that some of ARUR's Directors have acted without authorization in this matter, and TTII's management is assessing how to proceed at this time. No monetary claims have been asserted against TTII or TTII Oil & Gas, Inc.
 
Organizational History
 
We were incorporated in 1980 under the laws of the State of Nevada under the name of Western Exploration, Inc.  Western Exploration, Inc., a Nevada corporation, was formed on July 24, 1980. In 1990, Western Exploration, Inc. changed its name to Nugget Exploration, Inc.  On November 10, 1999, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nugget Exploration, Inc., Nugget Holdings Corporation merged with and into GoHealthMD, Inc., a Delaware corporation.  Shortly thereafter, Nugget Exploration, Inc. changed its name to GoHealthMD, Inc. a Nevada corporation.
 
On August 18, 2004, GoHealthMD, Inc., the Nevada Corporation, changed its name to Tree Top Industries, Inc.  GoHealthMD, Inc. continues to exist as a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Tree Top Industries, Inc.  NetThruster, Inc. MLN, Inc., BioEnergy Applied Technologies, Inc. (BAT”), Eye Care Centers International, Inc., GoHealthMD Nano Pharmaceuticals, Inc., TTI Strategic Acquisitions and Equity Group, Inc. and TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. are also wholly owned subsidiaries of Tree Top Industries, Inc. Several of these subsidiaries have been formed by us in the anticipation of technologies, products or services being acquired. Not all subsidiaries are currently active.

On December 31, 2012, Tree Top and its new subsidiary, TTII Oil & Gas, Inc., a Delaware corporation, signed a binding asset purchase agreement with American Resource Technologies, Inc. (“ARUR”), a Kansas corporation, to acquire all of the assets of ARUR for a purchase price of $513,538, which was paid in the form of 466,853 shares of Tree Top’s common stock as described in the asset purchase agreement. The shares were valued at $1.10 per share, based on the closing trading price of the common stock on the Closing Date. The assets purchased from ARUR include a 75% working interest in oil and gas leases in Kansas, as well as other oil field assets, a natural gas pipeline, currently shut down that is also located in Kansas, 25% interest in three other business entities operating in Kansas, and accounts receivables from two companies operating in Brazil in the amounts of $3,600,000 and $3,600,000 respectively.  TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. also purchased three promissory notes in the amounts of $100,000, $100,000 and $350,000, as well an overdue contract for revenue in the amount of $1,000,000.  Finally, a gun sight patent was also acquired from Century Technologies, Inc.  TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. intends to pursue more opportunities in Kansas to expand the current leases, and to aggressively continue pumping oil from the thirteen currently operating wells.  At the same time, both Tree Top Industries, Inc. and TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. intend to aggressively pursue the two companies located in Brazil, who are responsible for the over $7,000,000 dollars in monies owed to TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. All accounts and notes receivable were deemed uncollectable due to the age and circumstances, and therefore were assessed no value in the asset purchase.  The equity ownerships were also deemed to be impaired due to the inactive nature of the entities, and were not allocated any value. The gun sight patent was also not readily assessable as to value and no purchase price was allocated to this asset. Also due to the mechanics lien and lawsuit on the oil leases, as well as the absence of an official reserve report, the oil lease was also impaired and no value was recorded for this asset.

 
Research and Development
 
Although Tree Top’s staff is limited, it continues to monitor new developments and any emerging technologies.
 
Intellectual Property
 
Tree Top’s success depends in part upon it’s ability to protect it’s core technology and other intellectual capital. To accomplish this, Tree Top relies on a combination of intellectual property rights, including patents, trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, domain registrations and contractual protections. With the acquisition of Adesso Biosciences, Tree Top will acquire two patents, associated intellectual properties, and other proprietary information in the field of molecular science.
 
With the acquisition of BAT, Tree Top acquired fifteen (15) intellectual properties pertaining to the construction of the mobile configuration and operation of the glyd-arc medical waste destruction unit, as well as an enhanced configuration and novel method for coal gasification.
 
As of December 31, 2012, pursuant to the ARUR asset purchase agreement, the Company purchased eight related patents for various features of a gun sight, as applied to different types of firearms.. The Company has not had time to determine any viable use of the patents, and has not assigned a value to this intangible asset. Other than this purchased patent, Tree Top had received no patents in the United States and no patents in foreign jurisdictions. Tree Top has no pending patent applications in the United States and no pending patent applications in foreign jurisdictions. It had received no trademarks and had no pending trademark applications in the United States. It had no pending trademark applications in foreign countries and no non-U.S. trademark applications had been issued.
 
Tree Top generally controls access to and use of its software and other confidential information through (a) the use of internal and external controls, including physical and electronic security, contractual protections with employees, contractors, customers and partners, and (b) domestic and foreign copyright laws.

There is currently no use or activity involving the intellectual properties of the Company, and accordingly, there is no recorded value assigned to these assets.
 
Government Regulation
 
BAT
 
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), no registration of the BAT system is required because the waste destruction process does not involve incineration. Incineration processes are subject to regulation by the EPA. However, any hazardous waste destruction system that is constructed will be subject to the state laws and regulations where the system is located, as well as any regulations pertaining to the storage, transporting and/or destroying hazardous waste.  BAT is also subject to government laws and regulations governing health, safety, working conditions, employee relations, wrongful termination, wages, taxes and other matters applicable to businesses in general.
 
 
NetThruster
 
NetThruster is subject to various federal, state and local laws affecting the telecommunications and Internet industries. Laws and regulations that apply to communications and commerce conducted over the Internet are becoming more prevalent, both in the United States and internationally, and may impose additional burdens on companies conducting business online or providing Internet-related services such as ours. The laws relating to the liability of private network operators for information carried on or disseminated through their networks are unsettled, both in the United States and abroad. Network operators have been sued in the past, sometimes successfully, based on the content of material disseminated through their networks. The Federal Trade Commission and equivalent state agencies regulate advertising and representations made by businesses in the sale of their products, which apply to us. NetThruster is also subject to government laws and regulations governing health, safety, working conditions, employee relations, wrongful termination, wages, taxes and other matters applicable to businesses in general. 
 
GoHealthMD Nano Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
 
Governmental authorities in the U.S. and other countries extensively regulate the research, development, testing, manufacture, labeling, promotion, advertising, distribution and marketing, among other things, of biologic products. All of our foreseeable product candidates are expected to be regulated.
 
Oil & Gas Properties

Oil and gas properties are subject to various levels of government controls and regulations in the United States. Legislation affecting the oil and gas industry has been pervasive and is under constant review for amendment or expansion. Pursuant to such legislation, numerous federal, state and local departments and agencies have issued extensive rules and regulations binding on the oil and gas industry and its individual members, some of which carry substantial penalties for failure to comply. Such laws and regulations have a significant impact on oil and gas drilling, gas processing plants and production activities, increase the cost of doing business and, consequently, affect profitability. Inasmuch as new legislation affecting the oil and gas industry is commonplace and existing laws and regulations are frequently amended or reinterpreted, we are unable to predict the future cost or impact of complying with such laws and regulations. A breach or violation of such laws and regulations may result in the imposition of fines and penalties. At present, we do not believe that compliance with environmental legislation and regulations will have a material effect on our operations; however, any changes in environmental legislation or regulations or in our activities may cause compliance with such legislation and/or regulation to have a material impact on our operation. In addition, certain types of operations require the submission and approval of environmental impact assessments. Environmental legislation is evolving in a manner that means stricter standards, and enforcement, fines and penalties for non-compliance are becoming more stringent. Environmental assessments of proposed projects carry a heightened degree of responsibility for companies and directors, officers and employees. The cost of compliance with changes in governmental regulations has a potential to reduce the profitability of operations. We intend to ensure that we comply fully with all environmental regulations relating to our operations.
 
Competition
 
BAT
 
There are currently no direct competitors offering this new and novel technology into the waste destruction market.  The major companies that deal in hazardous waste management are companies such as Waste Management, Inc. Those companies treat, haul and store hazardous waste in landfills across the country. Some companies destroy hazardous waste, or any carbon based waste in general, through incineration, which produces a significant carbon footprint and can be as expensive as the storing model. The competitive disadvantage for the BAT process is that it is uncommercialized technology at present, which makes the process of acquiring adequate funding more difficult.  
 
 
NetThruster
 
The content delivery network market is highly competitive and is characterized by constantly declining prices and multiple types of vendors offering varying combinations of computing and bandwidth to content providers. A few of NetThruster’s current competitors, as well as a number of NetThruster’s potential competitors, have longer operating histories, greater name recognition, broader customer relationships and industry alliances, and substantially greater financial, technical and marketing resources than we do.
 
GoHealthMD Nano Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
 
This subsidiary has been organized for the future acquisition of companies involved in the treatment of human disease through nanotechnology and molecular diagnostics. However, such acquisitions have not yet been completed. Therefore this subsidiary is currently inactive with no operations. However, other companies, such as Nanoshpere, Inc., are in the treatment of human disease through nanotechnology and the molecular diagnostics industry.

Oil & Gas Properties:

Oil and gas exploration, and acquisition of undeveloped properties are highly competitive and speculative businesses. We compete with a number of other companies, including major oil and gas companies and other independent operators that are more experienced and which have greater financial resources. We do not hold a significant competitive position in the oil and gas industry.
 
Employees
 
As of December 31, 2015, we employed two people on a part-time basis.  Both employees are in executive positions. 
 
Seasonality
 
Our operations are not expected to be affected by seasonal fluctuations, although our cash flow may be affected by fluctuations in the timing of cash receipts from our customers.
 
ITEM 2.  PROPERTIES
 
Currently, TTI does not lease, rent or own any property, other than its office which acts only as a mail receipt center.
 
ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 During April 2012, the Company filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court against GeoGreen Biofuels, Inc. and related parties, relating to GeoGreen's failure to repay $192,000 advanced pursuant to a Bridge Loan Term Sheet.  Although litigation is inherently unpredictable, TTI is confident in its position, and intends to pursue the action aggressively. GeoGreen has filed a cross-complaint against the Company and its two officers, the Chief Executive Officer and the President, however the charges against the officers were subsequently dismissed with prejudice. A motion was also passed denying GeoGreen's motion to strike TTII's request for punitive damages. The Company has dropped its law suit for the time being.
 
 
During March 2013, the Company was named in an action pertaining to the 75% working interest in the Ownbey Lease. Subsequent to the Company’s purchase of the assets and the termination of the operator, a mechanics lien was filed against the property claiming approximately $267,000 in fees are due to the previous operator. An action is pending in the District Court of Chautauqua County, Kansas, captioned Aesir Energy, Inc. vs. Amercian Resource Technologies, Inc.; Nancy Ownbey Archer; Jimmy Stephen Ownbey; Robbie Faye Butts; Tree Top Industries, Inc.; and TTII oil & Gas, Inc.   Management intends to vigorously contest AESIR’s claims and, at this point, settlement appears unlikely. It has been presented in the County Court that some of ARUR’s Directors have acted without authorization in this matter, and TTII’s management is assessing how to proceed at this time. No monetary claims have been asserted against TTII or TTII Oil & Gas, Inc.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Cautionary Statements

Cautionary Statements
 
This Form 10-K may contain “forward-looking statements,” as that term is used in federal securities laws, about Tree Top’s consolidated financial condition, results of operations and business. These statements include, among others:
 
statements concerning the potential benefits that may be experienced from business activities and certain transactions contemplated or completed; and
 
statements of our expectations, beliefs, future plans and strategies, anticipated developments and other matters that are not historical facts. These statements may be made expressly in this Form 10K. You can find many of these statements by looking for words such as “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “opines,” or similar expressions used in this Form 10-K. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied in those statements. The most important facts that could prevent us from achieving our stated goals include, but are not limited to, the following:
 
a)
volatility or decline of Tree Top’s stock price; potential fluctuation of quarterly results;
 
b)
potential fluctuation of quarterly results;
 
c)
failure to earn revenues or profits;
 
d)
inadequate capital to continue or expand our business, and inability to raise additional capital or financing to implement our business plans;
 
e)
failure to commercialize our technology or to make sales;
 
f)
decline in demand for our products and services;
 
g)
rapid adverse changes in markets;
 
h)
litigation with or legal claims and allegations by outside parties against TTI, including but not limited to challenges to intellectual property rights;
 
i)
insufficient revenues to cover operating costs; and
 
 
There is no assurance that we will be profitable, we may not be able to successfully develop, manage or market our products and services, we may not be able to attract and retain qualified executives and technology personnel, we may not be able to obtain customers for our products or services, our products and services may become obsolete, government regulation may hinder our business, additional dilution in outstanding stock ownership may be incurred due to the issuance of more shares, warrants and stock options, or the exercise of outstanding warrants and stock options, and other risks inherent in our businesses.
 
Because the statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. We caution you not to place undue reliance on the statements, which speak only as of the date of this Form 10-K. The cautionary statements contained or referred to in this section should be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that we or persons acting on our behalf may issue. We do not undertake any obligation to review or confirm analysts’ expectations or estimates or to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Form 10K, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. 
 
 
PLAN OF OPERATIONS
 
With the steady decline of oil prices over the past year, Management has determined that the costs to extract oil would exceed the revenues generated to an extent that it was necessary to suspend oil operations. When oil prices increase, Management would expects to continue our oil and gas operations and formulate a plan to rework additional wells to bring them online and generate additional monthly oil production. The Company will also assess the potential expansion of additional oil leases in order to increase the oil production and revenue source.
 
This plan is totally dependent on the Chairman, David Reichman’s continued support, as well as our ability to raise capital. Execution of the business plan is subject to this constraint as well as the finding of sufficient funding.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 During the 2015 year, we generated a minimal amount of oil from our oil & gas operations in the State of Kansas, and during the 1 st quarter, we made preparations to temporarily suspend our oil production until oil prices increase and make it profitable to commence our operations. We realized revenues of $1,126 from our oil production operations during the year ended December 31, 2015, compared to $48,058 for 2014. The decrease in our oil revenues were a factor of suspending our oil pumping operations. Our oil operating expenses were $11,987, leaving a gross loss of $(10,861). Much of the oil production expenses were for operator services in suspending operations. Our other operating expenses decreased from $227,596 in 2014 to $191,928 in 2015. The decrease was primarily the result of decrease operating activities and legal expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased from $130,791 to $124,039 or 5%. Compensation and professional fees decrease by $28,551, due to the decrease in legal activities. Depreciation expense decreased from $2,823 to $2,458.
 
Our net loss decreased by $41,302 to $(308,293) in 2015 from $349,595 in 2014. This translates to a $.01 decrease in loss per share from $(.04) in 2014 to $(0.03) in 2015. Included in our net loss was $0 and $10,000 for the value of common stock issued in 2015and 2014 respectively. Excluding these non cash expenses, our net loss would have been $308,293 and $339,595, respectively. We expect that our losses may increase in the coming year as oil prices continue to decline and our oil operations are temporarily suspended.
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 At December 31, 2015 we had cash on hand of $108 compared to $1,689 at December 31, 2014. We used cash in our operations of $115,988 in 2015 compared to $161,640 in 2014, an 39% increase. We had a decrease in  cash used in investing activities  in 2015 of $1,931 from the purchase of marketable securities, compared to no activity in 2014. We raised no cash from the sale of our common stock or exercises of stock options in 2015 and 2014, respectively. However, we raised $118,338 and $159,120 from related party loans in 2015 and 2014, and $81,000 and $52,500 from other notes payable, respectively. We anticipate that we will continue to have a decrease in our cash flow from the continued oil operations in Kansas, however, and we estimate that we will have approximately $10,000 in cash flow deficits per month for 2016. We do not have sufficient cash on hand at December 31, 2015 to cover our negative cash flow. We will attempt to increase our revenues from our oil operations and possibly raise capital through the sale of our common stock or through debt financing.
 
Some of Tree Top’s past due obligations, including $338,000 of accounts payable, and $113,000 of notes payable and judgments, some of which are duplicative, were incurred or obtained prior to 2005. No actions have been taken by any of the applicable creditors. Action by any such creditor would materially decrease our liquidity. Tree Top has no credit facilities with which to resolve these outstanding obligations from prior years, but will fully resolve them upon a successful capital raise and monetary action of the business.  This may have a negative impact on our future liquidity in the event we must prioritize the repayment of these obligations when capital becomes available.  During 2013, Tree Top was successful in negotiating the conversion of $204,081 in accounts payable and the settlement of officer debt of $3,843,133 for shares of common stock and forgiveness. As of December 31, 2015 there is an amount due to officers and Directors equal to $905,120 as compared to $729,687 as of December 31, 2014, respectively, which may increase if such officers and/or Directors continue to provide additional sums of money and/or services that are payable upon demand. Our liquidity would decrease materially if any such officer or Director demanded repayment. These loans must be considered in any capital raise and could continue to restrict our liquidity upon such capital raise if repayment is thereby demanded. Tree Top shall attempt to cause these officers and Directors to request repayment in a way as to not materially harm Tree Top’s liquidity.
 
 
Any remedy to our current lack of liquidity must take into account all the foregoing liabilities. Tree Top intends to continue its pursuit to raise capital in order to monetize its business and pay all its liabilities. Capital raise plans are under consideration but it cannot be assured that they will materialize in the current economic environment. Currently, Tree Top is without adequate financing or assets. Because no actions have been taken on the aforementioned past due obligations and demand has not been made by the applicable officers or Directors, we are unable to accurately quantify the effect the overdue accounts have on Tree Top’s financial condition, liquidity and capital resources. However, in the event that all of these obligations and notes payable were required to be paid in an amount equal to the full balance of each, Tree Top would not be able to meet the obligations based upon its current financial status.  The liquidity shortfall of $3,215,878 would cause Tree Top to default and, further, would put our continued viability in jeopardy.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. These principles require us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, cash flow and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Our estimates include those related to revenue recognition, accounts receivable reserves, income and other taxes, stock-based compensation and equipment and contingent obligations. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and our actual results, our future financial statements will be affected.
 
We define our “critical accounting policies” as those U.S. generally accepted accounting principles that require us to make subjective estimates about matters that are uncertain and are likely to have a material impact on our financial condition and results of operations as well as the specific manner in which we apply those principles. Our estimates are based upon assumptions and judgments about matters that are highly uncertain at the time the accounting estimate is made and applied and require us to continually assess a range of potential outcomes. A detailed discussion of the critical accounting policies that most affect our company is located in Footnote 2 of the notes to our financial statements.
 
ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA
 
Scrudato & Co., PA
CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 

 
To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
 
Tree Top Industries, Inc.
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Tree Top Industries, Inc. as of December 31, 2015 and 2014 and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
 
We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Tree Top Industries, Inc.. at December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1, the Company has incurred significant accumulated deficits, recurring operating losses and a negative working capital. This and other factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also discussed in Note 1. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS

Organizational History
 
 We were incorporated in 1980 under the laws of the State of Nevada under the name of Western Exploration, Inc.  Western Exploration, Inc., a Nevada corporation, was formed on July 24, 1980. In 1990, Western Exploration, Inc. changed its name to Nugget Exploration, Inc.  On November 10, 1999, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nugget Exploration, Inc., Nugget Holdings Corporation merged with and into GoHealthMD, Inc., a Delaware corporation.  Shortly thereafter, Nugget Exploration, Inc. changed its name to GoHealthMD, Inc. a Nevada corporation.
 
On August 18, 2004, GoHealthMD, Inc., the Nevada Corporation, changed its name to Tree Top Industries, Inc.  GoHealthMD, Inc. continues to exist as a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Tree Top Industries, Inc.  NetThruster, Inc. MLN, Inc., BioEnergy Applied Technologies, Inc. (BAT”),  Eye Care Centers International, Inc., GoHealthMD Nano Pharmaceuticals, Inc., TTI Strategic Acquisitions and Equity Group, Inc. and TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. are also wholly owned subsidiaries of Tree Top Industries, Inc. Several of these subsidiaries have been formed by us in the anticipation of technologies, products or services being acquired. Not all subsidiaries are currently active.

On December 31, 2012, Tree Top and its new subsidiary, TTII Oil & Gas, Inc., a Delaware corporation, signed a binding asset purchase agreement with American Resource Technologies, Inc. (“ARUR”), a Kansas corporation, to acquire all of the assets of ARUR for a purchase price of $513,538, which was paid in the form of 466,853 shares of Tree Top’s common stock as described in the asset purchase agreement. The shares were valued at $1.10 per share, based on the closing trading price of the common stock on the Closing Date. The assets purchased from ARUR include a 75% working interest in oil and gas leases in Kansas, as well as other oil field assets, a natural gas pipeline, currently shut down that is also located in Kansas, 25% interest in three other business entities operating in Kansas, and accounts receivables from two companies operating in Brazil in the amounts of $3,600,000 and $3,600,000 respectively.  TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. also purchased three promissory notes in the amounts of $100,000, $100,000 and $350,000, as well an overdue contract for revenue in the amount of $1,000,000.  Finally, a gun sight patent was also acquired from Century Technologies, Inc.

TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. intends to pursue more opportunities in Kansas to expand the current leases, and to aggressively continue pumping oil from the thirteen currently operating wells.  However, with the decrease in oil prices over the past 2 years, the Company’s plans to expand operations have been suspended until oil prices improve.  The Company intends to continue through legal channels to aggressively pursue the two companies located in Brazil, who are responsible for the over $7,000,000 dollars in monies owed to TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. All accounts and notes receivable were deemed uncollectable due to the age and circumstances, and therefore were assessed no value in the asset purchase.  The equity ownerships were also deemed to be impaired due to the inactive nature of the entities, and were not allocated any value. The gun sight patent was also not readily assessable as to value and no purchase price was allocated to this asset. Also due to the mechanics lien and lawsuit on the oil leases, as well as the absence of an official reserve report, the oil lease was also impaired and no value was recorded for this asset.
 
B)       GOING CONCERN
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company incurred a net loss of $308,293 during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 and has an accumulated deficit of $150,295,275. During 2014 the Company incurred losses totaling $349,595 and is in default on several notes payable (see Note 5). The Company also has negative working capital of $3,215,878 and $1,789,781 at the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and negative cash flow from operations of $115,988 and $161,640.
 
During 2013, the Company generated significant revenues and has left the exploration stage, however, the Company’s revenues and cash flow are not sufficient enough to support all expenses of the Company. The Company as yet, still requires substantial financing. Most of the financing has been provided by David Reichman, the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. The Company is dependent upon his ability and willingness to continue to provide the financing necessary to meet reporting and filing requirements of a public company.
 
In order for the Company to remain a going concern, it will need to continue to receive funds from equity or debt financing and increase it’s operating revenues from the oil and gas operations.  There can be no assurance that the Company will continue to receive any proceeds from equity offerings or that the Company will be able to obtain the necessary funds to finance its operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
 
 
NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
A)      PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Ludicrous, Inc., BioEnergy Applied Technologies Inc., GoHealthMD, Inc., MLN, Inc., Universal Energy and Services Group, Inc. Sky Entertainment, Inc., Eye Care Centers International, Inc., GoHealthMD Nano Pharmaceuticals, Inc., TTI Strategic Acquisitions and Equity Group, Inc. and TTII Oil & Gas, Inc. All subsidiaries of the Company, other than TTII Oil & Gas, Inc., currently have no financial activity. All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated.
 
B)      USE OF MANAGEMENT’S ESTIMATES
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These financial statements have material estimates for valuation of stock and option transactions, and asset retirement obligations associated with the oil and gas operations.
 
C)      CASH EQUIVALENTS
 
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are maintained with major financial institutions in the U S. Deposits held with these banks at times exceed $250,000 of insurance provided on such deposits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes that it is not exposed to any significant credit risk on cash and cash equivalents. At December 31, 2015 and 2014, no excess existed. There were no cash equivalents at December 31, 2015 and 2014.
 
D)      FIXED ASSETS
 
Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets, ranging from 3 to 7 years for furniture, fixtures, machinery and equipment. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of the term of the lease or the economic life of the asset. Routine repairs and maintenance are expensed when incurred.
 
E)      INCOME TAXES
 
The Company applies ASC 740 which requires the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. The asset and liability method requires that the current or deferred tax consequences of all events recognized in the financial statements are measured by applying the provisions of enacted tax laws to determine the amount of taxes payable or refundable currently or in future years. Deferred tax assets are reviewed for recoverability and the Company records a valuation allowance to reduce its deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that all or some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be recovered.
 
The Company adopted ASC 740 at the beginning of fiscal year 2008. This interpretation requires recognition and measurement of uncertain tax positions using a “more-likely-than-not” approach, requiring the recognition and measurement of uncertain tax positions. The adoption of ASC 740 had no material impact on the Company’s financial statements. Deferred taxes are provided on a liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carry forwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will to be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.
 
F)      REVENUE RECOGNITION
 
We recognize oil production revenues, when the oil is accepted and picked up by our service provider in accordance with ASC 605 Revenue Recognition and Revenue Arrangements with Multiple Deliverables. Revenue is recognized when the price is fixed or determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured. If we subsequently determine that collection from that customer is not reasonably assured, we record an allowance for doubtful accounts and bad debt expense for all of that customer’s unpaid invoices and cease recognizing revenue for continued services provided until cash is received.
 
 
G)      STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
 
The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with the provisions of ASC 718. ASC 718 requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the financial statements based on the grant-date fair value of the award. That cost will be recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the reward- known as the requisite service period. No compensation cost is recognized for equity instruments for which employees do not render the requisite service. The grant-date fair value of employee share options and similar instruments are estimated using the Black Scholes option-pricing model adjusted for the unique characteristics of those instruments.
 
Equity instruments issued to non-employees are recorded at their fair values as determined in accordance with ASC 718 and ASC 595, “Accounting for Equity Instruments That Are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling Goods and Services”, and are periodically revalued as the stock options vest and are recognized as expense over the related service period.
 
H)      INTANGIBLE ASSETS AND BUSINESS COMBINATIONS
 
The Company adopted ASC 805, “Business Combinations”, and ASC 350, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets”, effective June 2001 and revised in December 2007. ASC 805 requires the use of the purchase method of accounting for any business combinations initiated after June 30, 2002, and further clarifies the criteria to recognize intangible assets separately from goodwill. Under ASC 350, goodwill and indefinite−life intangible assets are no longer amortized, but are reviewed for impairment annually.
 
With the acquisition of BAT, Tree Top acquired fifteen (15) intellectual properties pertaining to the construction of the mobile configuration and operation of the glyd-arc medical waste destruction unit, as well as an enhanced configuration and novel method for coal gasification. These intangibles have an undefined life as the intellectual property has yet to be commercialized. However, because there are no comparable properties, and because there is no cash-flow being generated from these intangibles, the Company could not determine a fair value at December 31, 2009 and therefore recorded an impairment of the entire capitalized value of $2,275,000.

With the acquisition of the assets of ARUR, the company acquired a patent for a gun sight. Since there was no available determinable value to the patent, no allocation of the purchase price was assigned to the patent. In addition, the Company acquired a 75% working interest in an Oil & Gas lease in the state of Kansas. Subsequent to the acquisition, the previous operator filed a mechanics lien on the property. The Company determined that due to this lien and loss of title to the assets,that the cost allocation to this asset would be written off as an impairment of a long lived asset. The Company acquired various minority equity ownerships in inactive companies in Brazil and uncollectible receivables, therefore no purchase price allocation was assigned to these assets.  No other intangible assets were acquired from this purchase.
 
I)      FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
 
On January 1, 2008, the Company adopted ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements”   ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement and enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels are defined as follows:
 
 
o
Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
 
 
o
Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.
 
 
o
Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair measurement.
 
The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash and cash equivalents, and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The carrying value of notes payable approximates fair value because negotiated terms and conditions are consistent with current market rates as of December 31, 2015 and 2014.

Marketable securities are reported at the quoted and listed market rates of the securities held at the year end.
 
 
 
The following table presents the Company’s Marketable securities and Notes Payable within the fair value hierarchy utilized to measure fair value on a recurring basis as of December 31, 2015 and 2014:

J)      BASIC AND DILUTED LOSS PER SHARE
 
The Company calculates earnings per share in accordance with ASC 260, “Computation of Earnings Per Share.” Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share gives effect to dilutive convertible securities, options, warrants and other potential common stock outstanding during the period; only in periods in which such effect is dilutive. For 2015 and 2014,  no common stock equivalent shares were excluded from the calculation as their effects are anti-dilutive, respectively. The ESOP shares issued during 2015 and 2014 have also been excluded from the calculation as they were issued but not outstanding.

K)       RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect. These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.
 
L)        BENEFICIAL CONVERSION FEATURE OF DEBENTURES AND CONVERTIBLE NOTES .
 
In accordance with FASB ASC 470-20, Accounting for Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features or Contingently Adjustable Conversion Ratios , we recognize the advantageous value of conversion rights attached to convertible debt. Such rights give the debt holder the ability to convert his debt into common stock at a price per share that is less than the trading price to the public on the day the loan is made to us. The beneficial value is calculated as the intrinsic value (the market price of the stock at the commitment date in excess of the conversion rate) of the beneficial conversion feature of the debentures and related accruing interest, and is recorded as a discount to the related debt and an addition to additional paid in capital. The discount is amortized over the remaining outstanding period of related debt using the interest method.

M)      IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

The Company has adopted FASB ASC 360 “ Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets," which requires that long-lived assets to be held and used be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Oil and gas interests accounted for under the full cost method are subject to a ceiling test, described below, and are excluded from this requirement.
 
N)       OIL AND GAS INTERESTS

The Company utilizes the full cost method of accounting for oil and gas activities. Under this method, subject to a limitation based on estimated value, all costs associated with property acquisition, exploration and development, including costs of unsuccessful exploration; are capitalized within a cost center. No gain or loss is recognized upon the sale or abandonment of undeveloped or producing oil and gas interests unless the sale represents a significant portion of oil and gas interests and the gain significantly alters the relationship between capitalized costs and proved oil and gas reserves of the cost center. Depreciation, depletion and amortization of oil and gas interests is computed on the units of production method based on proved reserves. Amortizable costs include estimates of future development costs of proved undeveloped reserves.

Capitalized costs of oil and gas interests may not exceed an amount equal to the present value, discounted at 10%, of the estimated future net cash flows from proved oil and gas reserves plus the cost, or estimated fair market value, if lower, of unproved interests. Should capitalized costs exceed this ceiling, an impairment is recognized. The present value of estimated future net cash flows is computed by applying average prices, in the preceding twelve months, of oil and gas to estimated future production of proved oil and gas reserves as of year-end, less estimated future expenditures to be incurred in developing and producing the proved reserves and assuming continuation of existing economic conditions.

O)       ASSET RETIREMENT OBLIGATIONS

The Company follows FASB ASC 410-20 "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations," which addresses financial accounting and reporting for obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets and the associated asset retirement costs.

FASB ASC 410-20 requires recognition of the present value of obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets in the period in which it is incurred. The liability is capitalized as part of the related long-lived asset's carrying amount.

Over time, accretion of the liability is recognized as an operating expense and the capitalized cost is depreciated over the expected useful life of the related asset. The Company's asset retirement obligations are related to the plugging, dismantlement, removal, site reclamation and similar activities of its oil and gas exploration activities.
 

P)           Investments – Equity Method

          The Company accounts for its investment in private entities using the equity method for investments where the Company’s shares held are in excess of 20% of the outstanding shares of the investee.  The Company acquired a 25% equity investment in three entities from Brazil. Due to the inactivity of the entities, the Company did not allocate any purchase price to these investments. The Company evaluates its cost  investments  for  impairment  of  value annually.  If cost investments become marketable they are reclassified to Marketable Securities-Available  for Sale.
 
Investments are as follows:
       
   Balance, December 31, 2013   $ 0  
   Investments acquired in ARUR asset purchase     0  
   Realized gains and losses     0  
   Unrealized gains and losses     0  
   Balance, December 31, 2014 and 2015   $ 0  
 
          Q)              Marketable Securities-Available for Sale

The   Company   purchased marketable   securities during 2012 and 2015. The Company's marketable securities are classified as "available for sale".  Accordingly, the Company originally recognizes  the  shares at the market value purchased.  The shares are evaluated quarterly using the specific identification method. Any unrealized holding gains or losses are reported as Other Comprehensive Income and as a separate component of stockholder's equity.  Realized gains and losses are included in earnings. Also other than temporary impairments are recorded as a loss on marketable securities in the statements of operations.

R)         Accounts Receivable/Allowances for Doubtful Accounts

The Company regularly assesses the collectability of its accounts receivable, and considers receivables with aging exceeding 120 days to be potentially uncollectible.  Management will analyze the need for an allowance for doubtful accounts at that time. As of December 31, 20145and 2014, there are no allowances recorded.

 S)           Concentrations of Credit Risk

During the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company had one major customer, through which the Company sold 100% of its oil production. Although the Company believes comparable refineries could be contracted to pickup and purchase our oil the loss of this customer could have a temporary negative impact on the Company’s operations.

NOTE 6 - INCOME TAXES
 
The FASB has issued FASB ASC 740-10 (Prior authoritative literature: Financial Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes - An Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109” (FIN 48)). FASB ASC 740-10 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with prior literature FASB Statement No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes. This standard requires a company to determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination based upon the technical merits of the position. If the more-likely-than-not threshold is met, a company must measure the tax position to determine the amount to recognize in the financial statements. As a result of the implementation of this standard, the Company performed a review of its material tax positions in accordance with recognition and measurement standards established by FASB ASC 740-10.
 
Deferred taxes are provided on a liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carry-forwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax basis. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.
 
Deferred tax assets and the valuation account are as follows:

The Company has adopted FASB ASC 740-10 to account for income taxes. The Company currently has no issues creating timing differences that would mandate deferred tax expense. Net operating losses would create possible tax assets in future years. Due to the uncertainty of the utilization of net operating loss carry forwards, an evaluation allowance has been made to the extent of any tax benefit that net operating losses may generate. A provision for income taxes has not been made due to net operating loss carry-forwards of $11,869,867 and $11,561,574 as of December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, which may be offset against future taxable income from 2029 through 2034. No tax benefit has been reported in the financial statements.
 
A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits is as follows:

The Company did not have any tax positions for which it is reasonably possible that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease within the next 12 months.
 
The Company includes interest and penalties arising from the underpayment of income taxes in the consolidated statements of operations in the provision for income taxes. As of December 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company had no accrued interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions.
 
The tax years that remain subject to examination by major taxing jurisdictions are for the years ended December 31, 2015, 2014 and 2013.

NOTE 8- COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
A)      LEASES
 
Tree Top Industries, Inc. currently does not lease, rent or own any property.
 
B)      LITIGATION
 
The Company was a defendant in a lawsuit from a supplier that is alleging non-payment of amounts owed for services rendered. The amount asserted was $54,712 and a judgment was entered in the matter for $55,512. Tree Top has included this amount in accounts payable at December 31, 2015 and 2014.
 
The Company was a defendant in a lawsuit from another supplier also alleging non-payment of amounts owed for services rendered. The amount asserted was $4,298. A judgment was entered for $4,352 and the Company has included this amount in accounts payable at December 31, 2015 and 2014.
 
The Company was a defendant in a lawsuit from a third supplier also alleging non-payment of amounts owed for services rendered. The amount asserted was $9,675. Management has included this amount in accounts payable at December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014. All the notes payable discussed in this section, were incurred before 2002 and before present management took control of the company.
 
The Company was a defendant in a lawsuit from a supplier alleging nonpayment of amounts owed for services rendered. Management settled this lawsuit on November 30, 2001 and issued a note payable for $18,000 due September 1, 2002 with interest at 6% per annum in full settlement of this claim. As reflected in Notes Payable, the amount due on this note remains unpaid, and management has indicated that it has received no demand for payment from this note holder.
 
The Company was a defendant in a lawsuit from another supplier also alleging nonpayment of amounts owed for services rendered. This lawsuit was settled on May 1, 2002 by issuing a non interest bearing note payable for $25,000 due on September 12, 2002. The Company defaulted on this note, has not paid it to date and received a notice of motion dated October 22, 2002, seeking entry of a judgment for $30,000 plus interest effective December 6, 2002. The Company adjusted the note balance to $30,000 and has recorded interest expense at 6% per annum from May 1, 2002, the date of settlement, through the end of 2015.
 
The Company was a defendant in another lawsuit from a former consultant alleging nonpayment of amounts owed for services rendered. Management has executed a note payable to this plaintiff for $40,000 which was due on July 10, 2002 and remains unpaid. Pursuant to the terms of this note, the Company has recorded interest payable at 7% for the period July 10, 2002 through December 31, 2015.
 
 During April 2012, the Company filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court against GeoGreen Biofuels, Inc. and related parties, relating to GeoGreen's failure to repay $192,000 advanced pursuant to a Bridge Loan Term Sheet.  Although litigation is inherently unpredictable, TTI is confident in its position, and intends to pursue the action aggressively. GeoGreen has filed a cross-complaint against the Company and its two officers, the Chief Executive Officer and the President, however the charges against the officers were subsequently dismissed with prejudice. A motion was also passed denying GeoGreen's motion to strike TTII's request for punitive damages. For the time being TTII has dropped their lawsuit.

Pursuant to the asset purchase agreement with ARUR, the Company has a contingent liability to payback notes payable in the amount of approximately $400,000 if the Company is successful in collecting on certain accounts receivable. If the receivables are not collected, there is no obligation on the Company to pay off the debt.

During March 2013, the Company was named in an action pertaining to the 75% working interest in the Ownbey Lease. Subsequent to the Company’s purchase of the assets and the termination of the operator, a mechanics lien was filed against the property claiming approximately $267,000 in fees are due to the previous operator. An action is pending in the District Court of Chautauqua County, Kansas, captioned Aesir Energy, Inc. vs. Amercian Resource Technologies, Inc.; Nancy Ownbey Archer; Jimmy Stephen Ownbey; Robbie Faye Butts; Tree Top Industries, Inc.; and TTII oil & Gas, Inc.   Management intends to vigorously contest AESIR’s claims and, at this point, settlement appears unlikely. It has been presented in the County Court that some of ARUR’s Directors have acted without authorization in this matter, and TTII’s management is assessing how to proceed at this time. No monetary claims have been asserted against TTII or TTII Oil & Gas, Inc.
 
 
C)      EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT
 
Effective October 1, 2007, the Company entered into a two-year employment agreement with David Reichman, Chief Executive Officer, pursuant to which Mr. Reichman was paid an annual salary of $250,000, payable in semi-monthly installments.

During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Board of Directors approved the extension of this contract until December 31, 2013 with a salary of $1.  Mr. Reichman’s salary has been accruing because Tree Top is without the resources to pay the salary in full.

This salary increase accrued in 2010 because Tree Top was without resources to pay the salary increase. This employment agreement was filed on March 25, 2010 as exhibit 10.1 to a current report of the Company on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. Mrs. Griffin’s employment contact has been extended at December 31, 2012 until December 31, 2013, with a salary of $1.

NOTE 11 - ASSET PURCHASES AND OIL & GAS PROPERTIES

On December 31, 2012, Tree Top and its new subsidiary, TTII Oil & Gas, Inc., a Delaware corporation, signed a binding asset purchase agreement with American Resource Technologies, Inc. (“ARUR”), a Kansas corporation, to acquire all of the assets of ARUR for a purchase price of $513,538, which was paid in the form of 466,853 shares of Tree Top’s common stock as described in the asset purchase agreement. The assets purchase from ARUR are as follows:

● 
75% working interest in the Ownbey Oil & Gas leases in Chautauqua County Kansas, with associated equipment and oil field assets

● 
A 1 to 2 mile shut down natural gas pipeline located in Montgomery County Kansas

● 
Common Stock interest representing 25% of the common stock of Brasil Asset Management, Inc.

● 
Common Stock interest representing 25% of the common stock of Thor Geotrac.

● 
Common Stock interest representing 25% of the common stock of Ameribras Oklahoma.

● 
Account receivable from skyberCorp do Brasil (Ameribras) due1/1/2011 in the amount of $3,600,000

● 
Account receivable from Brasil Asset Management Projectos Limitada (BAMB) due 1/1/2012 in the amount of $3,600,000

● 
Promissory Note Receivable from Ameribras Energy, Inc, due 5/13/2010, in the amount of $100,000

● 
Promissory Note Receivable from Ameribras Energy, Inc, due 6/15/2010, in the amount of $100,000

● 
Promissory Note Receivable from Brasil Asset Management, Inc, due 3/26/2011, in the amount of $350,000

    ● 
Contract for Revenue with Brasil Asset Mangement, Inc. (BAMO), in the amount of $1,000,000 due and payable on or before 1/30/11.

● 
Gun sight patent acquired from Century Technologies, Inc.

Although no liabilities were assumed in the purchase agreement, a contingent liability is attached if the receivables are collected by the Company. The contingent liabilities are approximately $400,000. The Company has not recorded the liability because the event precipitating the liability has not occurred and is not likely to occur in the future and the fair value is zero.

The assets were purchased with the issuance of 466,853 shares and were valued at market value at the grant date as $513,538. The allocation of the purchase price is as follows:
 
75% working interest in Oil & Gas lease:
  $ 513,538  
         
Recorded value
    513,538  
 
 
All accounts and notes receivable were deemed uncollectable due to the age and circumstances, and therefore were assessed no value in the asset purchase.  The equity ownerships were also deemed to be impaired due to the inactive nature of the entities, and were not allocated any value. The gun sight patent was also not readily assessable as to value and no purchase price was allocated to this asset.

Subsequent to the Company’s purchase of the assets and the termination of the operator,  a mechanics lien was filed against the property claiming approximately $267,000 in fees  are due to the previous operator. The Company is aggressively defending the action, however at December 31, 2012, due to the lien and loss of title to the assets, the Company impaired the recorded cost, leaving no value associated with the acquisition. The Company recorded an impairment on long lived assets in the amount of $513,538.

Because of the mechanics lien which impaired the title to the Oil and Gas properties, the Company did not record any asset retirement obligations or assets related to this transaction at December 31, 2012. Once oil operations commenced an estimate for the remediation of the oil lease was assessed and recorded in 2013. (See Note 13)

NOTE 12 - MARKETABLE SECURITIES – AVAILABLE-FOR-SALE

In May 2012, the Company acquired 2,052 shares of Facebook stock (FB) for $95,256 plus fees. The value of the shares at December 31, 2015 and 2014 amounted to $104,660 and  $78,020, respectively.   A 2012 decrease, gave rise to an unrealized loss of $40,632 for the year ended December 31, 2012, and then an unrealized gain of $23,371 in 2014, and an unrealized gain of $26,640 in 2015. The Company evaluated the prospects of it’s investments in relation to the severity and duration of the impairment. Based on that evaluation, the Company consider the shares to be other than temporarily impaired at December 31, 2012, and recorded loss on marketable securities in the statement of operations of $40,632.

In May 2013, the Company sold 1,052 shares of FB for $28,562, giving rise to a realized gain of $557, recorded in the statement of operations for the period ended December 31, 2013. All unrealized gains in 2014 and 2015 have been recorded as an increase to the marketable securities and an increase to accumulated other comprehensive income in equity. During 2015 the Company acquired 6,750 shares of Immune Therapeutics common stock for $1,931. As of December 31, 2015 the value was $1,484, with unrealized losses of $447 recorded as a decrease to marketable securities and accumulated other comprehensive income.

NOTE 13 - ASSET RETIREMENT OBLIGATION

During 2013, the Company began the re-work project on various well associated with the Ownbey Oil and Gas Lease purchased on December 31, 2012. The Company will be required as part of the purchase of this lease to remediate the Ownbey property upon it’s abandonment of the lease. In accordance with FASB ASC 410-20, Asset Retirement Obligations, the Company recognized the fair value of the liability for an asset retirement obligation in the amount of $101,250. Because the Company does not have a certified valuation report for the Ownbey lease we have not capitalized this cost, but instead have expensed the entire amount during the 2013 year. The following table describes all changes to the Company’s asset retirement obligation liability during 2015:
 
 
December 31,
 
  2015     2014  
 Asset retirement obligation-beginning of year $ 101,250     $ 101,250  
 Liabilities incurred   -       -  
 Accretion expense   -       -  
 Revisions in estimated cash flows   -       -  
 Asset retirement obligation-end of year $ 101,250     $ 101,250

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer, we have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer has concluded that, as of December 31, 2014, these disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that all information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is: (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rule and forms; and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. The Company’s controls are not effective due to a lack of the segregation of duties.  The Company lacks the appropriate personnel to handle all the varying recording and reporting tasks on a timely basis.  The Company plans to address these material weaknesses as resources become available by hiring additional professional staff, such as a Chief Financial Officer, as funding becomes available, outsourcing certain aspects of the recording and reporting functions, and separating responsibilities.
 
The term “internal control over financial reporting” is defined as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the registrant’s principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the registrant’s Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:
 
 
o
pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the registrant;
 
 
o
provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the registrant are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the registrant; and
 
 
o
provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the registrant’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
 
Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer and effected by our Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
 
The framework our management uses to evaluate the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting is based on the guidance provided by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in its 1992 report: INTERNAL CONTROL - INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK. Based on our evaluation under the framework described above, our management has concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was ineffective as of December 31, 2014 due to the same material weaknesses that rendered our disclosure controls and procedures ineffective. The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is not effective due to a lack of sufficient resources to hire a support staff in order to separate duties between different individuals. The Company lacks the appropriate personnel to handle all the varying recording and reporting tasks on a timely basis.  The Company plans to address these material weaknesses as resources become available by hiring additional professional staff, such as a Chief Financial Officer, as funding becomes available, outsourcing certain aspects of the recording and reporting functions, and separating responsibilities.
 
This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation requirements by the company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.
 
Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting
 
During the year ended December 31, 2015 there was no significant change in our internal controls over financial reporting or in other factors that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
 
Inherent Limitations over Internal Controls
 
TTI’s management does not expect that its disclosure controls or its internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. The design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Further, because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that misstatements due to error or fraud will not occur or that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within TTI have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Projections of any evaluation of controls effectiveness to future periods are subject to risks. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.
 
Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of that our reports will be accurate. Our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer concludes that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective at that reasonable assurance level, as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-K due to the lack of sufficient segregation of duties and the lack of appropriate personnel. The Company plans to address these material weaknesses as resources become available by hiring additional professional staff, such as a Chief Financial Officer, as funding becomes available, outsourcing certain aspects of the recording and reporting functions, and separating responsibilities.  Our future reports shall also indicate that our disclosure controls and procedures are designed for this reason and shall indicate the related conclusion by the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer as to their effectiveness.
 
 
PART III
 
ITEM 10.  DIRECTORS , EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
 
As of December 31, 2015, the Board of Directors consisted of five Directors. The Board of Directors has determined that each of the Directors, with the exception of Mr. Reichman and Mrs. Griffin, qualifies as “independent” as defined by SEC rules. In making this determination, the Board has concluded that none of these members has a relationship which, in the opinion of the Board, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a Director.
 
During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, the Board of Directors held a total of one meeting.  Mr. Reichman, Mr. Benintendo, Mr. Gilbert and Mrs. Griffin attended at least 100% of the meetings of the Board of Directors and at least 100% of the meetings of the committees on which he or she served.  
 
The Board of Directors is currently comprised as follows:
 
David Reichman is the Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, and has been an executive officer for more than five years. Previously, for more than 27 years, Mr. Reichman maintained a Business Management and Tax Law consulting group. He is an enrolled agent and licensed by the US Treasury/Internal Revenue Service. In addition to his Tax Law Consulting practice, Mr. Reichman was Co -General Partner and Tax Matters Partner in Harrison Re-cycling Associates, a company that maintained and operated the first recycling equipment for non-biodegradable Styrofoam and Styrene plastic in North America. Prior to that, from early 1970 to late April 1975, Mr. Reichman was employed by The American Express Company, where he held several positions, including Manager, Budget and Cost. During his tenure at American Express, Mr. Reichman created and developed, together with Control Data Corporation, the Flexible Budgeting for Management Control of International Operations Program , as well as the use of Time-Share computer equipment.  Mr. Reichman’s education includes an MBA from Northeastern University through the Harvard Case Study Program, as well as specialized education in financial and scientific theory from The Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania and IBM Systems Scientific Institute.

Mr. Benintendo has designed the current TTI logo, designed and updated all stationary, presentation material and marketing tools and has worked several versions of the TTI website, including the current iteration.
 
Don Gilbert, Treasurer, has been a Director of TTI since November 2006 and a member of the Audit Committee since November 1, 2007.

Family Relationships
 
There are no family relationships between or among the directors, executive officers or persons nominated or chosen by us to become directors or executive officers.
 
 
Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings
 
To the best of our knowledge, during the past five years, none of the following occurred with respect to a present or former director, executive officer, or employee: (1) any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time; (2) any conviction in a criminal proceeding or being subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offences); (3) being subject to any order, judgment or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his or her involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities; and (4) being found by a court of competent jurisdiction (in a civil action), the SEC or the Commodities Futures Trading Commission to have violated federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended or vacated.
 
 
Code of Conduct
 
We have adopted a Code of Conduct that governs the required ethical conduct of our Directors, officers and employees. The text of the Code of Conduct has been posted on TTI’s website and can be viewed at www.TreeTopIndustriesInc.com. Any waiver of the provisions of the Code of Conduct for executive officers and Directors may be made only by the Audit Committee and, in the case of a waiver for members of the Audit Committee, by the Board of Directors. Any such waivers will be promptly disclosed to our shareholders.
 
Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
 
Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires our Directors and executive officers and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of our equity securities, to file with the SEC and the OTCQB initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of shares of common stock of TTI. Officers, Directors and greater than 10% stockholders are required by SEC regulations to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.
  
Board Vacancies
 
In the event of a vacancy on the Board of Directors, the Board will seek to identify and evaluate director candidates. Such evaluation involves (i) soliciting recommendations, (ii) meetings and background material relating to potential candidates and (iii) interviews of selected potential candidates by members of the Board of Directors.
 
In considering whether to recommend any particular candidate for inclusion in the Board of Directors’ slate of recommended director nominees, the Board reviews each potential candidate’s integrity, business acumen, knowledge of our business and industry, experience, diligence, absence of conflicts of interest and the ability to act in the interest of all stockholders. We believe that the backgrounds and qualifications of our Directors, considered as a group, should provide a composite mix of experience, knowledge and abilities that will best allow the Board of Directors to fulfill its responsibilities.
 
Stockholders may recommend individuals to the Board for consideration as potential director candidates by submitting their names, together with appropriate biographical information and background materials and a statement as to whether the stockholder or group of stockholders making the recommendation has beneficially owned more than 5% of our common shares for at least a year as of the date such recommendation is made. The recommendation should be sent to the Board of Directors, c/o Frank Benintendo, Secretary, Tree Top Industries, Inc. 511 Sixth Avenue, Suite 800, New York, N.Y. 10011. Assuming that appropriate biographical and background material has been provided on a timely basis, the committee will evaluate stockholder-recommended candidates by following substantially the same process, and applying substantially the same criteria, as it follows for candidates recommended by our Board or others. If the Board of Directors determines to nominate a stockholder-recommended candidate and recommends his or her election, then his or her name will be included in the proxy card for the next annual meeting.
 
Nominating Committee
 
We do not currently have a nominating committee. We feel this is appropriate due to the small size of our company. Therefore, this function is handled directly by the Board of Directors.
 
Audit Committee
 
Our Audit Committee was established in accordance with section 3(a) (58) (A) of the Exchange Act. It is chaired by Donald Gilbert, a former US Treasury/IRS executive. Our Audit Committee does not have charter. Our Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements with management, and has discussed with the independent auditors the matters required to be discussed by the statement on Auditing Standards No. 61, as amended (AICPA, Professional Standards, Vol. 1, AU section 380),1 and as adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board in Rule 3200T;
 
The Audit Committee has received the written disclosures and the letter from the independent accountant required by the applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding the independent accountant's communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence, and has discussed with the independent accountant the independent accountant's independence; and
 
The Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited financial statements be included in TTI's annual report on Form 10-K.

Stock issuances have been made to both Mr. Reichman and Mrs. Griffin as compensation for their continued work and support of Tree Top, without salary.
 
The Board determined the compensation for David Reichman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for 2012. Mr. Reichman’s salary remained at $500,000 for 2012. This is less than the competitive labor market median for someone with his skills and talents, but reflective of the Company’s current cash position. The Company has entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Reichman regarding his responsibility for implementing the policies adopted by the Board of Directors.   Due to Mr. Reichman’s continued willingness to forego his salary payment while the Company attempts to raise capital, the Board of Directors decided to issue 675,000 shares of Tree Top common stock to Mr. Reichman on August 12, 2012. On December 29, 2012, the board and Mr. Reichman agreed that the Company would continue to receive his services through December 31, 2014, at an annual salary of $1.00, said agreement has been extended through December 31, 2016.
 
The Board also determined the compensation for Mrs. Griffin, President, based on her undeterred commitment to Tree Top. Her salary remained at $180,000 in 2012. Due to the fact that Mrs. Griffin was willing to forego her salary for the entire year of 2012, and any bonus due her, the Board of Directors issued 255,000 shares of common stock to Mrs. Griffin on August 12, 2012. Currently, her salary is less than the competitive labor market median for someone in her position, but reflective of the Company’s current cash position.   On December 29, 2012, the board and Mrs. Griffin agreed that the company would continue to receive her services through December 31, 2014, at an annual salary of $1.00. Mrs. Griffin agreement has been extended through December 31, 2016 on a part time basis as needed.
 
 
Employment Agreements
 
Mr. Reichman’s employment agreement provides for:
 
 
o
a eighteen months term through June 30, 2014 at an annual base salary of $1;
 
 
o
at least one annual salary review by the Board of Directors;
 
 
o
participation in any discretionary bonus plan established for senior executives;
 
 
o

Mrs. Griffin’s employment agreement provides for:
 
 
o
a sixteen month term through April 30, 2014 at an annual base salary of $1.
 
 
o
at least one annual salary review by the Chief Executive Officer;
 
 
o
participation in any discretionary bonus plan established for senior executives;

The members of the Board of Directors are compensated by grants of stock and options, in lieu of cash payments. The Directors were issued 100,000 shares of common stock in July, 2013.   They were not issued any options. No compensation was provided to the Board of Directors during 2014 or 2015.
