The program contemplates 235 hectares of reforestation, and only local species such as juniper, ocote, and of course, nopal and maguey will be used. In total, more than 250,000 plants will be planted.
Reforestation is important to fight the climate crisis, and one of the reasons is that trees are great water catchers. When it rains on the bare ground the water can evaporate or run off, but when it rains on a tree the water infiltrates into the ground and can reach the aquifers.
In addition, reforestations work very well to prevent soil erosion and generate ecosystems full of flora and fauna.
