Summer 2015 Reforestation: 27,875 Trees Planted!

June, July and August were busy months for Alternare and the seven indigenous communities that joined them to plant 27,875 trees in twenty hectares of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve‟s buffer zone. Seven hundred men, women and children, Alternare‟s technicians, and personnel from UNAM‟s Center for Research in Environmental Geography (CIGA) all pitched in, helping to select the locations and planting the trees.

During the 2010-2014 period, Alternare created a data base where they registered sampling sites to monitor tree survival rates. The criteria to select these sites were the year of reforestation, the reforested surface and distance from highways. These three variables were determined in twenty four sampling sites covering approximately eighty hectares. This process was done for the period mentioned above but the necessary field work is still pending to verify the data.
