MBF Begins Reforestation!

Reforestation for 2015 has started, before the rainy season catches up to us! Local communities and schools, along with our local partner Alternare, are in the forest, busy planting trees.  

During June, 9,042 trees were planted in 8.5 hectares at Carpinteros, Francisco Serrato, Cresencio Morales, Nicolás Romero and Donaciano Ojeda. Pine, oak, oyamel and honeysuckle seedlings from the 23 tree nurseries established and maintained by the communities were used. We continue seeking ways to optimize our reforestation strategy and tree survival rates, so we planted some trees using the organic fertilizer known as Bokashi to be able to compare their growth with those planted without it.

One of the participants from Francisco Serrato, who has been in charge of the reforestation in his community since 2007, enthusiastically told us, “We get water and fuel wood from the forest so it’s very important to reforest, we are giving the forest back what it so generously gives us.”

We also continued with our other activities holding 3 workshops on how to produce trees with the participation of 39 women and 14 men who produced 3,860 trees.

We are very excited to have more and more communities joining us helping us recover the forest and improving the situation for the monarchs.
