Current Progress

As of January 2023, the project has accomplished 100% of the planting goal with 135 hectares restored across Almoloya Ejido and 864 hectares out of 3,000ha in Rancho Nuevo and Unión Ejidal Tierra y Libertad ejidos. In six months, 120,246 native trees were planted. The replanting of 24,000 timber individuals is scheduled to take place from May to August 2023.

A Community Driven Approach

Technology driven implementer, Toroto, has partnered with ejidos, local community landowners, to actively restore 135 hectares of land by planting maguey plants, nopal, juniper and oak trees. Simultaneously they are passively restoring an additional 3,000 hectares through the Pastor Program – focused on providing alternate feed sources to livestock –  to nurture the local aquifer and generate sustainable livelihoods for local communities for decades to come.

Benefits Go Beyond Carbon

Not only does Llanos de Apan have powerful climate benefits, it also has an outsized impact on the local communities, biodiversity and water sources. In areas of active restoration, dams and stone barriers are being built to enrich the soil, reverse erosion and rehabilitate nearby water sources. To drive lasting benefit, the project focuses on engaging and educating the local community with free technical environmental training to include the ejidatarios in the restoration projects and long-term activities in these regions.

Passive restoration activities has been started with fencing and fire breaks implementation, and hydroponic green forage production implementation. Active restoration activities continue with fire breaks implementation and replanting dead seedlings.

February 2023

The environmental management squad will carry out activities from February to April to establish 9 km of firebreaks and irrigate the plantation established last year, building three cisterns of 10,000 liters each to provide water for irrigation.

Pachama’s Technology

Using technology every step of the way, Pachama helps leading companies invest directly in high-quality reforestation projects with unprecedented transparency and accuracy. Pachama uses Light Detection and Ranging technology (LiDAR) to characterize the structure of the trees before planting, serving as a baseline for future carbon measurement. Pictured below is the LiDAR baseline gathered from the Fazenda Santa Rosa farm. Over the next few decades, remote sensing will be continuously deployed to measure forest growth and estimate the carbon sequestered.
