PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Reforestation project in the Macashca community, Huaraz, Peru, involving the planting of 500 trees at over 4,000 meters above sea level.

Latin America has experienced extreme weather events, such as forest fires, very high temperatures and devastating floods. In this context, we have decided to expand our operations to several Latin American countries, including Colombia, Honduras and Peru. Our goal is to restore degraded areas in an effort to combat climate change and its effects in the region.

Among our reforestation plans, this project in the community of Macashca, Huaraz, Peru, stands out. In order to start this initiative we have had the valuable collaboration of Living Earth, an NGO committed to environmental protection and sustainable development. This project focuses on planting more than 500 trees in the Andes Mountains, at an altitude of more than 4,000 meters. The species selected for this project include Queñual and Radiata Pine, trees known for their resistance to the harsh altitude and climate conditions of the region.

The Queñual, native to the Andes, is vital for soil conservation and water retention. This species helps prevent erosion and improve local biodiversity. Radiata pine, although not native, adapts well and restores degraded areas effectively, providing long-term ecological and economic benefits.
