29 ha farm near Platanillo
Herewith some photos of EALA's new reserve near Platanillo, at 14 km from Dominical in the south of Costa Rica at the Pacific Ocean.
In July 2019 we will start a reforestation program with the help of our forest engineer Daniel Jenking and COOPEAGRI with whom we have signed a contract for planting this year up to 2700 native hard wood trees. COOPEAGRI represents FONAFIFO of the Ministry of Environment who manage the program Pago Servicios Ambientales. Apart from planting the trees, we have also signed a long-term contract for the protection and conservation of the 7 hectares forested area of the finca.
We have started a nursery in Platanillo - VIVERO LA CEIBA - for some 2000 native trees to be planted along the existing forest and the stream running through the finca. Species are: manglillo, espavel, gabilan, guachepelin, corteza amarilla, etc. We will finally plant in 2019 some 700 fruit trees marañon (cashew nut) For more info about this project, write or call at the adresses provided.
