Alternare carries out evaluations two or three years after the plantations are established and so far they have performed four evaluations with the following results:
|Period of |
|Year of |
Percentages are calculated based on the reforested area and survival percentages on the last three columns are classified in three categories:
- Good: Greater than 61% of trees present.
- Moderate: Between 40 and 60% of tree present.
- Bad/Poor: Between 0 and 39% 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.
