Name of Project: Reforestation After a Tornado in the Endangered Atlantic Forest of Argentina, Part II

Number of Trees to be Planted: 1,000

Directly Benefits: Local families, endangered animals

Location: Argentina

Year: 2011

Goals

  • Reforest areas destroyed by a tornado in 2009
  • Ensure a long-term supply of critical food- and nest-trees for endangered birds
  • Educate farmers about the benefits of having native trees on their farms


Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the Proyecto Selva de Pino Paraná in order to restore parts of the subtropical Atlantic Forest.  This ecosystem is home to endangered birds such as the Vinaceous Parrot (Amazona vinacea), Azure Jay (Cyanocorax caeruleus), and White-bearded Antshrike (Biatas nigropectus), as well as the Parana Pine (Araucaria angustifolia) tree species.

In 2009, a severe tornado devastated the area and nearly all of the large, old trees fell, leaving bare soil with no vegetation. In 2010 American Forests began supporting this project, and has planted 533 native trees with the support of 29 farming families and the students from the primary school.
