The planting of new trees in Ayapel can only be done in two seasons a year due to the natural movement of water levels.

At the end of April, the first season began, so last month we planted 2,000 trees and we are planning to plant another 2,000 trees this month.

The sowings are carried out with voluntary work from the community, that is, the community contributes their time and work to move this project forward.

The trees that have been planted are mainly cedars, oaks, kapok trees and Orejero.

In the nursery we currently have 3,000 growing trees for future plantings.

CorpoAyapel has a tree nursery where local species are planted, watered and maintained. This nursery is key for the project becasue this is where our staff makes sure that the trees have the right conditions to grow strong. The goal is to oversee their growth, and once they are ready to be planted, take to the wetland.

For CorpoAyapel to plant trees, they need to be produced in the nursery first.

During the last months we planted kapok, cedar, mangrove and guayazan. They are ready to be taken to the wetland. See pictures.

CorpoAyapel's tree nursery is being maintained as planned and our staff are dedicated to its maintenance. There are now hundreds of trees from the nursery ready to be planted.

During the month of July, 6,000 new trees were planted in Ayapel. This process was done with the community, volunteers and local farmers that believe in the importance of planting trees as way to help with the rehabilitation of the ecosystem that has been greatly affected by illegal mining. 

One of the youth organizations that helped in the process is "Jovenes por Ayapel" (youth for Ayapel) 

This message from the community is very impactful and explains why this is important:

"Imagine if trees could give us WiFi, everybody would plant trees as crazy and we could end de-forestation, unfortunately they only produce Oxygen, which is what we breath”

Durante el mes de julio se sembraron 6.000 árboles nuevos en Ayapel. Este proceso se realizó con la comunidad, voluntarios y finqueros locales que creen en la importancia de sembrar árboles como forma de ayudar con la rehabilitación del ecosistema que ha sido muy afectado por la minería ilegal.

Una de las organizaciones juveniles que ayudó en el proceso es "Jóvenes por Ayapel"

Este mensaje de la comunidad es muy impactante y explica por qué es importante:

"Imagínate que los árboles dieran WiFi, todo el mundo plantaría árboles a lo locos y acabaríamos la deforestación. Lástima solo produzcan el oxígeno, que respiramos"
