Project Types

Our principles are collaboration, action, and education, and we work in permanent movement for the environment, to protect the natural resources and change people’s mentality.

Among our lines of action are reforestation projects in protected wild areas of high ecological value, enrichment in areas of natural regeneration after fires, environmental education programs in schools, research projects and donations to small and medium-sized enterprises, the latter with the aim of stimulating the local economy of each region.

Massive reforestations

We carry out massive reforestations in national parks and reserves and on surfaces intended for conservation.

In the first case, the National Forest Corporation (CONAF) is our main partner. Together, the reforestation areas are identified, as well as the species to be planted and the type of protection that must be carried out according to the location. In the case of surfaces intended for conservation, a process is carried out in conjunction with the municipalities, public ministries and universities, among other public organizations, to choose the land and manage volunteer participation.

Environmental education

We have an environmental education and fire prevention program. This plan is taught through educational sessions that include a theoretical module taught by an expert in environmental matters, and a practical part, in the field, where the same participants are the executors of the reforestation of their environment, being trained in the techniques of planting and aftercare.

Donations to small and medium-sized enterprises

To encourage and promote the development of economic activities around the non-timber exploitation of forests and boost the sustainable management of native forests, we also have a training program and we donate native plants to the communities. The project has been carried out through farmer groups and cooperatives in the O’Higgins, Maule, Ñuble, Biobío and Araucanía regions.

Forest fire prevention

More than 125,000 acres are destroyed by fires each season and prevention is the best way of avoiding it. Our workplan is developed in various regions in the country. They include education and preventive forestry actions such as reduction and removal of vegetal fuel, firewalls, enabling ground and helicopter paths to help the fire brigades in their work and for last the implementation of a fire brigade in Metropolitan Region to support in the fire fighting and control.
