The Dominican Republic’s Environment Ministry stated that in October, Reforestation Month, 2.04 million seedlings were planted, which exceeded the goal of 2.0 million. Dominican Today reports that several days of reforestation were carried out in all provinces across the country, especially those with a lower forest population.

According to the Environment Ministry, “Watersheds, high mountains and areas of influence of the dams were also of high priority to guarantee water production.” The varieties of trees planted include cedar, pine, mahogany, lignum vitae, Honduran mahogany, sea grape, almácigo, tamarind, mara, sauco, oak, and cabirma, among others.
