Our tree planting season runs from December to March and is timed to coincide with our wet season (which occurs in our summer months). Planting for the 2007/08 season has just come to an end, and with generous funding from the World Land Trust we have been able to plant an amazing 20,000 trees. This brings the total number of trees that have now been planted at REGUA to 38,000!
As with previous years, many of the trees have been planted around the wetland but this year we have planted much of the large grassy hill opposite the lodge. Not only will this greatly enhance the already spectacular view from the lodge, but it is hoped that the trees will slowly attract more forest birds to the area. Watering on this scale is never an easy task and thankfully the recent wet weather has helped to get the trees off to a good start. More on this will follow in the next REGUA newsletter.
