Yos tree, medium fast grower
LRFF/CR received a very generous donation (thank you dear friend) in February for the Rio Sol Biological Corridor and this has enabled the crew to continue the maintenance on the project. I’ve been going to Guatuso every other week to pay the crew and see the progress of maintenance and tree growth. The photos tell the story…
The trees were much less than a meter tall when they were planted, June 2011. Most are medium fast growers so take a look at the photo of Chavo and Deibys next to a fast growing tree at Chino’s property, planted in June as well……..
See the photos of why the maintenance cleaning is so important. Without maintenance the trees would drown in vines and weeds.
When the crew does the maintenance on each area they always replace trees that didn’t survive since the last time they passed by. Because of this LRFF’s reforestation projects have a very low mortality rate.
Steven Sukh from London came to visit us in March. He walked the Rio Sol Biological Corridor with Jimmy, Jorn, Chavo, Oto and me. He was amazed at the same things you see in the photos but very tired from the walk in the hot sun. You’re all lucky that I don’t have to walk your asses off to give these update blogs, eh?!
