Welcome to Tree-Update 35!
Brazil is famous for the Amazon rainforest. But there is another rainforest that covers the east coast of Brazil – the Mata Atlântica. Much like the Amazon, the Atlantic Rainforest is a biodiversity hotspot greatly threatened by deforestation.
In this video, I hand it over to the tree planters working on the ground – Felipe, Joaquim, and Laury Jr. What does planting the right tree in the right way look like across four different tree-planting sites? This episode covers the importance of agroforestry systems, the necessity of collaborating with indigenous people to restore native land, and how planting forest corridors helps endangered species repopulate.
