Project
The Generation Forest - Planting Permanent Forests in Panama
Panama, Colón started 2017 Active Conservation, Plantation Forestry, Restoration
Summary
The generation forest is a forestry model that was developed to help create a forest that provides for the needs of humanity as well as the environment. What makes it unique among other reforestation projects is that the forests are not clear-cut as they are in plantations. Instead of a monoculture, we plant a healthy mixture of different native tree species to create a dynamic ecosystem. Young and old trees are cultivated alongside one another in a permanent system.
