Alternare has carried out evaluations of tree survival rates two or three years after the plantations are established. So far, they have performed three evaluations and have recorded a high percentage of tree survival throughout the years which translates into the consolidation of a good forest mass. The following table shows their results:
|Period of |
|Year of |
The survival percentages on the last three columns are classified in three categories:
- Good: Greater than 50% of trees present.
- Moderate: Between 30 and 49% of tree present.
- Bad/Poor: Between 0 and 29% of tree present.
The classification indicates that sites with good survival tend towards the consolidation of the forest mass. Sites with moderate survival are in a transitional phase, while sites with bad/poor survival rates tend to become agricultural plots or grazing areas.

Rincón" indigenous community with an average growth of trees as follows:
