WHO SHOULD INTEREST:

We must reforest the Corridor to Tocumen, respecting the antenna spaces, making it a Green Corridor, providing shelter and food for birds, native stingless bees and other autochthonous species.

I never tire of advertising the BURSERA SIMARUBA, popularly known by many names as a tourist tree, naked Indian, cholo pelao or ¨gumbo limbo¨. This tree, has a beautiful green trunk, with reddish skin that "disappears" permanently, and gives it a unique and beautiful appearance. Apart from the scenic beauty provided by this tree, it supports the inclemencies of the wind, loses its leaves in summer, giving way to the inflorescence and later to the fruit that gives food to an incredible variety of birds. If it receives full sun, it does not reach giant heights, those that are observed in the forests, since there they must compete by the sunlight. There are many Bursera Simaruba that are easily maintained between 12-15 feet high.

The corridor can also be used to sow fruit, ornamental, etc ... these may require a little more attention than the Bursera Simaruba, but well worth it. The harvest of the fruit trees could be used by all the neighbors of the area, NGOs, governmental organizations, schools, etc ... a day dedicated to harvest ... so that the surrounding communities and the citizen in general are the custodians of these trees. >

I already have my small seedlings (germinated from seed), I hope to plant about 20 Burseras Simaruba in a place near my route in this rainy season.
