Process of assisting the recovery of a forest ecosystem that was degraded, damaged or destroyed. SER, 2004 SER, 2004

We regenerate the upper canopy of the jungle through restoration techniques adapted to the local situation with a triple purpose

A.

Recover the structure and functionality of the original native forest.

B.

Sequestering carbon from the atmosphere

How we work?

Under a scientific approach, but revaluing local ancestral knowledge, and in alliance with local institutions, we restore the native ecosystem based on the following methodology:

Once the trees acquire a certain size, the microclimate is generated that allows the rest of the species to colonize all the strata. Vegetable species of the undergrowth appear, lianas, animals, fungi, lichens, and the trophic framework that unites the entire ecosystem develops again. The forest recovers its healthy aspect, in other words, its structure and function, as well as being a producer of ecosystem services again. We invite companies to join our work and help us plant more trees

Reforesting, more than

Beginning: 2002
Ecorregion dense vegetation and permanent humidity
Location desde el sur de Perú hasta el norte de Argentina
Biodiversity Very Hight
Problematic: selective felling of the upper layer.
Nowadays we are working to reverse this situation and restore the upper strata of the forest to our yungas.

243 hectares of yungas were already restored
And we keep planting!

Beginning: 1998
End: 2010
Ecorregion area of
most extensive dry forest in South America
Problematic: indiscriminate exploitation and lack of management that leads to desertification
Achieved restoration of
1,500 hectares, plantation of
645,000 trees, direct impact on more than 102 families
