Torres Burgos called on the residents of the area to take ownership of the vegetation and collaborate with irrigation, adopt a tree, and during the dry season to water the new trees more frequently.

In a complementary manner and as part of the reforestation scheme, actions are contemplated aimed at protecting and, in specific cases, relocating the vegetation along the more than 129-kilometer route of the Ie-Tram project, the first 100% electric means of transportation in the southeast of the country and the only one of its kind in Latin America.

This vegetation management plan, which applies to all sections, includes a total of 13,820 trees throughout the project, of which more than 2,000 specimens of the species chacté, balché, Campanita, Anacahuita, chacsinkín, Pasak, Chaká, Ciricote, Cedro, among others, along the stretch that goes on 39th Street from the Periférico Ring to “La Plancha” Park.
