Don Pedro’s work is worthy of admiration, with a very unique care of forest seedlings. Every day he works in the municipal forest nursery of Loblatzan Chiquito, the community of San Martín Sacatepéquez where he lives.
Despite the pandemic, Don Pedro did not fail in his work of caring for and watering the seedlings and improving techniques for good production. He is the person in charge of producing forest plants for the municipal, communal, and private forests of his municipality. Based on telephone technical assistance and personal visits, he has acquired knowledge on handling forest seeds and the frequency of irrigation in the correct use of substrates in bags and seedbeds.
Thanks to his dedication, there are already more than 50,000 seedlings, which will be used in 2021 to reforest degraded or forestry areas.
