It was undoubtedly an unprecedented and surprising event for the country since it is the first time that aerial planting has been carried out. On this occasion, there were 500 kilos of araucaria seeds, which were thrown from the Bell UH-1H helicopter to the China Muerta National Reserve, in the Araucanía Region.
After a forest fire that occurred in 2015, many of the specimens in this Reserve were left without life, so that reforestation is presented as an important pillar for the place to remain alive.
The pine nuts made with the germplasm of araucaria seeds collected in the same place will go to cover the more than 3,000 hectares affected. While the Revivamos China Muerta organization also helped CONAF make this planting possible.
For the Director of CONAF in the Region of La Araucanía, David Jouannet, this is an important process since "this stage of restoration is open to which people can collaborate with us, as Helicopteros del Pacífico and the Foundation do today" Let's revive Dead China ”, therefore, the public and private sectors and civil society are in this work, to work together for the restoration of this affected area,” he pointed out.Ecoportal.net
