Summer seedling production

It's the rainy season in the Atlantic Forest, which marks the beginning of the most difficult time of the year for our field team.

But while the heavy rains bring challenges for our efforts out in the field, at the tree nurseries it spells good news.

It’s an extremely busy time for the nursery workers, who are making the most of the rains to grow seedlings like pau-viola, jatobá, copaíba and jacarandá, which thrive under the hot and humid conditions.

By the time they’re done, they’ll have planted more than four thousand seedlings of each species ready for planting in the field in a matter of months.
