From planting to seed collection -- Constant cycles

Community people committed to recovering forests
Community people committed to recovering forests

Several species of birds have accompanied us in each planting practice during this summer's reforestation campaign. Very early in the morning we gathered to participate in the reforestation activities; attending the call as if we were diurnal birds that start their day making community.

During each day, it is necessary to arrange the distribution of plants and species in each plot to be intervened, organize ourselves to move the plants and define the equipment for the planting of the various species of forest native trees produced in the region. In the field,  one person goes making strains while another goes planting.

In the last months we were able to deliver more than 15,000 tree plants in rural communities of seven municipalities of the Highland of Chiapas region. The native trees most requested were Oaks, Pines and Alders.

These plantations are helping to form an ecological corridor around cities and towns that depend on forest cover for water catchment. At the same time, the landscape is recovering to improve habitat quality and resource availability for resident and migratory birds that share the territory with people. 

Your donations will help us to continue with the next activity this winter. We will be collecting seeds from the nearby forests of five species of oaks (Quercus crispipilis, Quercus rugosa, Quercus segoviensis, Quercus ocoteifolia and Quercus candicans), and some pine species (Pinus oocarpa and Pinus ayacahuite). We also need to condition and rehabilitate our nurseries to have a successful plant production to continue with the planting cycle in 2023.

¡THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION! Without your generosity all this would not be possible.
