With an investment of 200 million pesos (10.5 million USD), the company Bienes Ecológicos (Bieeco) planted more than one million “teca” Teak trees (Tectona grandis) in an area of 1,200 hectares in the state of Yucatan.
This action promotes the production of oxygen to the atmosphere, the capture of carbon di-oxide and improves soil fertility. In the same way, the local fauna is protected since the reserve represents a refuge and habitat for several species that were forced to move to other places as a result of uncontrolled urbanization.
“Biodiversity has returned to this region of Tizimín, in Yucatan, since jaguars, boars, armadillos, raccoons, spider monkeys and lizards have recently been photograhed within the plantation limits,” said Rubén Quezada, general director of the Bieeco Ecoforestry Goods division.
In that sense, Quezada added that “the land on which the plantation was established was a cattle ranch on which surface there was grass and bushes but no trees.”
The ecological company donated a number of palm trees to the municipality of Tizimín, which in turn gave them to schools and police stations to promote regional reforestation.
In this way, Jorge Vales Traconis, municipal president of Tizimín, called on the business sector “to follow the example of a socially responsible company that, in addition to generating jobs and economic spill, has a commitment to the environment.”
Teak (Tectona grandis) is a tropical hardwood tree species placed in the flowering plant family Lamiaceae. Tectona grandis is a large, deciduous tree that occurs in mixed hardwood forests. It has small, fragrant white flowers and large papery leaves that are often hairy on the lower surface. It is sometimes known as the “Burmese teak”.
