FOREST PLANTING PROJECTS




1.      SEEDLING PRODUCTION

Seedlings are asexually cloned in our garden from the best trees in our plantations.

After the clonal garden process is completed, the material is transplanted into coconut peat plugs and exposed to fertilization, they are then tested for adaptability before they are transplanted into the field.

2.   Soil preparation

Land clearing and undergrowth control is performed. Subsequently, the planting density is determined and the plotting is carried out.

3. holes for planting

In the previously marked spot, a hole is done with these dimensions: 10*25 cm.

4.  Tree selection

Trees with good root development are selected for planting purposes, these individuals are disease free and will grow  straight stems.

5.  Planting

The tree is placed in the hole and covered with the soil obtained from the original digging and compacted thoroughly.

6.  Fertilization

Two fertilizations are carried out, one a month after planting and the other 6 months after. The necessary rainfall for the initial growth is always considered during the fertilizing season.

7.pruning

Performed manually to give the tree a shape that guarantees the largest volume of the most valuable timber products.

8. Maintenance

Weekly monitoring of the plants to determine the need for pruning, fertilizing, clearing and pest control.

9. Inventory and replanting

Twice a year an inventory of trees is performed in order to take corrective measures and replant individuals if necessary.
