A Successful Year for Alternare: 22,515 Trees Planted & More!

This past summer, Alternare, along with nine indigenous communities, planted 22,515 trees on 21.52 hectares in the buffer zone of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve (MBBR)!

December 05, 2021

About 550 women, men and children participated, averaging 25 people per reforestation due to the physical distancing requirements in compliance with COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. This year, trays were used to grow seedlings in the nurseries, avoiding individual plastic bags for each tree. This is an ecologically friendly process that respects the three R’s of environmentally friendly practices: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
