Review for La Cruz Habitat Protection Project, Inc, Austin , TX, USA
I would like to comment on and commend the work of the La Cruz Habitat Protection Project. Over the years this group has provided free of charge forest trees native to the high Mexican mountains to farmers interested in reforestation and sustainable forest management. They have advised local farmers in the planting, and care of the seedlings succeeding in this effort to the extent that their seedling success rate is the highest in the entire area. They have convinced many and continue to convince that growing trees for profit is a an economic activity more suited to those high mountain ecosystems than is the growing of most agricultural crops. The result has been a bonus to both the locals who live on the land and to the monarch butterflies with whom they share the forests.
