Reforestation of the Córdoba mountains project.

The Lacandon Maya people - of which the last few hundred survivors live in Chiapas, Mexico - preserve a land management practice that permits rapid recovery of forest following agricultural use on a small scale. In other words, the time of fallows is shortened thanks to the use of a fast-growing native tree called Chujum (Ochroma pyramidale, Bombacaceae; Balsa, in English) with great commercial value. Thanks to its abundant and rapidly decomposing foliage, the Chujum can help enrich soils depleted of nutrients and organic matter following unsustainable agriculture and livestock management practices. It can also be very useful in the rehabilitation of degraded zones, dominated by the Bracken fern, Pteridium aquilinum (Petatillas, in Spanish) following a long history of intensive use and intentional fires. (Complete story is in Spanish).

Read an update from James Aronson and Andre Clewell - August 2013.

Just like 2012, the first half of 2013 has quite eventful for RNC, and members of the RNC Alliance, and the second half of this year is getting off to a strong start as well. In addition to ongoing projects in Madagascar, South Africa, France, USA and elsewhere, a lot is happening in Latin America and Spain.

Watch for regular updates from other regions.
Enjoy the read!
