Tietê Forests
Brazil, Ibitinga started 2020 Active Restoration, Research
WeForest and AES Brasil are collaborating to restore the forest on the edges of the Tietê river in the Atlantic Biome and its tributaries with native species, protecting water bodies from soil siltation and runoff from herbicides and pesticides. The project is also providing a testing ground for restoration approaches that aim to reduce the use of herbicides – which are usually relied on in Brazil to control invasive grasses – or eliminate them entirely.
