Raised as a goal for the federal government of Mexico, until this November one million hectares have been reforested in the national territory. This after having planted an average of 36 million trees per year, with a plant survival rate of 64%, which represents an increase of 88% over that registered in 2012, which was only 34%.
Through the National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR), it was taken as one of the main actions to address both deforestation and the degradation of green areas. The planting of trees was also carried out using correct methods and techniques in order to rehabilitate, recover, restore, conserve and protect forests, jungles, wetlands and arid zones.
This favored the regulation of the hydrological cycle, favoring the infiltration of water into the water table, improving the water quality, reducing evaporation and surface runoff and avoiding the silting of rivers, streams and bodies of water in different parts of Mexico.
Additionally, there was a greater forestry coverage in areas where there were no trees before, thus mitigating the effects of climate change through the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2), the natural areas that serve as a source of food and refuge for wildlife increased, and new recreational sites were created.
