30,000 Trees Planted This Summer!

This past summer, six local indigenous communities and Alternare planted 30,000 trees on 28 hectares in 13 sites in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve’s (MBBR) buffer zone! A total of 2,537 women, men, and children enthusiastically participated in the tree production process in 26 community and seven school nurseries.

An additional 594 people also helped in the site selection, an amazing ownership of the entire process by the local communities. Everyone asked to plant more pine trees since they can be managed more sustainably, so 95.2% of the trees used in the reforestation were pines. Other tree species planted included oaks (0.2%), oyamels (1.5%), and alders (3.1%).
