READY TO REFOREST?
- Ron Ron
- Cocobolo (does loose their leaves in the summer)
- Quina (Medicinal against malaria)
- Níspero de bosque (very endangered, very slow growing, has been cut for it’s hard long lasting wood in construction)
- Seiba Pentandra (that is the gorgeous Seiba that grows huge. I want to plant more of those in our area, but I only found them in the Jicaral area, when we bought 1000 endangered trees to plant in the secondary forest parts of the Karen Mogensen Reserve. Have you ever been there? So beautiful!!! May be Manuel has them, would be so nice on your land)
Endangered (less), evergreen, beautiful
Evergreen Flowering Trees
These are forest trees that are very good to reforest with. You may want to plant several of them:
Jicara, this is the GOURD tree, is good to use to carve or make fun things out of, it is a small tree, no flowers, but has the big gourds hanging.
Get all INHERTADO, (GRAFTED) so they produce early. You have to keep cutting off the shoots below the graft, I can show you that if you don’t know how.
For trees you can check out all the nurseries, the first 2 have more types of trees usualy. They all have different plants.
