Fazenda do Salso

Fazenda do Salso is the first area of the Serra do Sudeste Afforestation and Landscape Restoration project and was developed to address the degradation of ecosystems in Rio Grande do Sul due to deforestation and unsustainable land use. Together with the local community, we co-design and co-implement the afforestation strategy: a combination of biodiverse forestry with agroforestry and native timber management to earn a steady income from the natural sequestration of carbon as well as from sustainable logging.
