WHEN WE PLANT TREES AT AMAZON WE BUILD A BETTER FUTURE FOR THE PLANET AND THE PEOPLE.

YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT AT PRESERVING THE AMAZON RAINFOREST.WE AT SAVING THE AMAZON ARE SPECIALISTS.

We do perform this work  from an ancestral vision, studying and restoring native tree species, that had gradually disappeared. At the moment our efforts are focused on planting the following species, identified by the natives as “endangered”. With each tree we aim to provide value to the diversity of the forest and the needs of the community. Beyond creating oxygen, we sow future for indigenous people.

Reforestacion-Amazonas-salvar-siembra-arboles-regala un árbol-savingtheamazon.jpgSimarouba amara Is a tree specie that belongs to the family Simaroubaceae.

DESCRIPTION

They are trees or shrubs, which reach a size of 3-30 m high; dioecious plants. The imparipinnadas leaves, 10-30 cm long, with 6-18 leaflets, obovate, 3-9 cm long and 1-3 cm wide, rounded at apex emarginate, acuminate acute at the base, generally dark green or olive green on upper surface, lighter on the undersides and yellow-green. Panicles 10-30 cm long, unisexual flowers, sepals 5, 1 mm long, green or green olives; petals 5, 4-7 mm long, usually yellow but often with green or red hues; stamens 10, filaments 1-2.5 mm long, with an appendix at the base, anthers 1-1.5 mm long, very reduced in pistillate flowers; gineceo 5-carpelar and 5-locular, free stigmata. Drupe 1-5, compressed, elliptical-lenticular, 1.5-2 cm long and 1-1.5 cm wide, orange or red at maturity.

Distribution and habitat: Common in open areas and deciduous forests, areas of the Pacific and Atlantic at an altitude of 0-500 meters; from Belize to Brazil and the West Indies. There are two forms of this species: one corresponding to the type of S. amara and is a large forest tree with petals and smaller anthers; and the other form, typical of open environments, is a smaller tree, with slightly larger petals and anthers and is representative of the taxon called S. glauca. The difficulty of assigning all specimens of these two species described in addition to the existence of numerous intermediate forms are arguments for joining these names under one kind.

Uses: Its seeds produce edible oil. The tree is very suitable for warm weather and the humid tropics. Its cultivation depends on the distribution of rainfall, the water retention capacity of the soil and subsoil moisture. It is suitable for temperatures of 10-40 ° C. It can grow at altitudes from sea level to 1,000 m. Reaches a size of 12 to 15 m high and has a wingspan of 7.6 to 9.1 m. It has yellow flowers and fleshy fruit elongated oval purple.

Cultivation:It’s easy to spread by seed, grafting and tissue culture technology. The fruits are harvested in April / May, when ripe and dried in the sun for a week. The skin is removed and seeds are grown in plastic bags to produce seedlings to 2 to 3 months old, young trees can be transplanted to a plantation.

Environmental impact: The tree forms a well-developed root system and dense evergreen foliage efficiently controlling soil erosion is compatible with microbial life of the soil and improves the position of groundwater. Besides converting solar energy into biochemical energy all year round, overheating the ground surface is checked throughout the year and especially during the summer. Large-scale planting in wastelands facilitates land development, becomes the atmospheric buildup of carbon dioxide into oxygen and contributes to reducing the greenhouse effect or global warming.

Properties: The leaves the bark and the root are used. Other popular names in Guatemala: Jocote mico, Negrito; Olive; Pasac.

the leaves and the root are usefull for infusion or to treat malaria, gastrointestinal disorders (diarrhea, atonic dyspepsia, weakness, amebiasis, roundworm, whipworm, vomiting), nervousness, intermittent fevers, cough. Tincture of leaves has antiamoebic activity. The crushed leaves are applied topically to treat skin conditions and some forms of cancer.

Reforestacion-Amazonas-salvar-siembra-arboles-regala un árbol-savingtheamazon.jpgMyrcianthes leucoxyla called Arrayan or guayabo de castilla is a specie of plant in the Myrtaceae family and gender Myrcianthes.

DESCRIPTION

The myrtle grows between 6 and 16 meters tall cup has rounded, with dense, twisted, angular and gnarled branches ocasionas. It is an evergreen plant; the stem exhibits a brownish-reddish crust color off in small strips; the leaves are opposite, leather-like texture, smooth, wide, elliptical, resinous, aromatic, with protruding ribs on both sides but predominating in the bottom; They have a length of 2 to 5 cm. The flowers are yellowish-white. However, the leaves of humid environments and low light can be different, being lanceolate, long, narrow 5 to 7 cm.3 The fruit is large round, green and red when the start-pale yellow or cream when ripe; the fruit has a single seed rounded.

its close to other species such as Myrica parvifolia, and Prunus tomentosa Weinmannia buxifolia. Myrtles attract many insects during the flowering season, trees covered with a blanket of white flowers stay swarms of bees and flies that feed on and pollinate; then they sprout the fruits are edible and have a ‘aromatic’ flavor. These serve as food for birds, including the blackbirds (great thrush) and picaflor (masked flowerpiercer).

Uses: This species can be used by part of hedgerows and plant it near the beds of streams and rivers in order to provide shade. It is customary to use their leaves to relieve pain by chewing molars and its fruits are used to feed birds in captivity, according to the Botanical Garden José Celestino Mutis of Bogota.

Because of its relatively small size, dense crown and aromatic smell, is used as an ornamental plant which partly contributed to its preservation after the destruction of native forests in their area of distribution., it also has been used to stop sources of erosion and maintenance watercourses.

The infusion of cortex and root is used to treat malaria, gastrointestinal disorders (diarrhea, atonic dyspepsia, weakness, amebiasis, roundworm, whipworm, vomiting), nervousness, intermittent fevers, cough. Tincture of leaves has antiamoebic activity. The crushed leaves are applied topically to treat skin conditions and some forms of cancer.

Reforestacion-Amazonas-salvar-siembra-arboles-regala un árbol-savingtheamazon.jpgEPEREA PURPUREA.

Eperua is a genus of tropical trees comprising 15 species belonging to the family Fabaceae subfamily Caesalpiniaceae.

Fabaceae (Fabaceae) or legumes (Leguminosae) are a family of the order of Fabales. Meets trees, shrubs and perennial or annual herbs easily recognizable by their type fruit vegetable and composed and stipulated leaves. It is a family of cosmopolitan distribution with about 730 genera and about 19,400 species, which makes it the third family with greater wealth of species after Compositae (Asteraceae) and orchids (Orchidaceae). This species richness is particularly concentrated in the branches of the mimosoideae and fabóideas, and containing about 9.4% of all species of eudicotiledóneas.5 It has been estimated that about 16% of all species tree in neotropical rainforests are members of this family. Also, family Fabaceae are more represented in the tropical rain forests and dry forests of America and Africa.

Regardless of the disagreements that until recently existed over whether Fabaceae should be treated as a single family of three subfamilies or as three separate families, there is a lot of information and both molecular evidence as morphological underpinning the legumes are one family monofilética.7 This view has been reinforced not only by the degree of interrelation exhibiting different groups within the family compared to that found among legumes and their closest relatives, but also for all recent analysis based phylogenetic sequences DNA. Such studies confirm that legumes are a monophyletic group and is closely related to the family Polygalaceae, surianaceae and Quillajaceae with those that make the Fabales order.

Together with cereals and some tropical fruits and roots, various legumes have been the basis of the human diet for millennia, being an inseparable companion use of human evolution.

Ecology: The leaves of some species have domatia in the axils of the nerves, inhabited by mites. protóginas flowers, often with complex systems of flowering to prevent selfing. The fruits are an important food source for birds, usually specialized (Cotingidae, Columbidae, Trogonidae, Rhamphastidae, etc.) and highly dependent on this food. Birds eat the whole fruit and regurgitate the seeds intact, expanding in the best conditions for germination (bats are). Secondarily, the dispersion made monkeys, squirrels, porcupines, opossums, and fish. the hydrochory is known in Caryodaphnopsis.

Fruit of Persea americana: The family is distributed in tropical areas, except for few species that inhabit temperate areas of both hemispheres. The main centers of diversity are found in the Indo-Malayan region and Central and South America, being relatively poor in species Africa. They inhabit tropical montane forests, reaching some species to reach 4000 m, but are even more frequent in lowland rain forests. Some species have adapted to extreme conditions: semiarid climates, forests periodic flooding or sand almost without nutrients.

Uses: lauráceas are important components of many forests and jungles around the globe. The product is now more appreciated avocado, fruit of the avocado tree (Persea americana), used in salads and in obtaining oil for cosmetics. In times past, one of the main spices, cinnamon, was obtained from the bark of cinnamon or cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum verum) and a few closely related species of inferior quality. Cassia bark of Cinnamomum cassia is obtained. perfumes and essential oils drugs rosaeodora Aniba, Ocotea odorifera and Cinnamomum camphora (camphor) are extracted. The wood of some species is exploited locally for its strength or its beauty, for furniture, but only a few are marketed worldwide: Chlorocardium Rodiaei.

Eusideroxylon zwageri, porous Ocotea and Endiandra palmerstonii. South African overexploited species (Ocotea bullata) had to be protected.

Reforestacion-Amazonas-salvar-siembra-arboles-regala un árbol-savingtheamazon.jpgBrasiliensis, commonly called rubber tree, rubber tree or seringueira (Portuguese), is a tree of the family Euphorbiaceae 20 to 30 m tall (exceptionally 45 m).

DESCRIPTION:

The trunk is straight and cylindrical 30 to 60 cm in diameter, white and light wood. Its leaves are composed trifoliate, alternate, 16 cm in length, 6 to 7 cm wide; partially leaves falling leaves during the dry season, before which the leaves of the tree become reddish. The flowers are small and gathered in large panicles. Fruits are produced from 4 years, each of which is a large capsule 4 cm in diameter that opens in leaflets, with oil-rich seeds.

The latex is white or yellowish and abundant until the 25-year-old tree. It is manufactured rubber, after “bleeding” through the trunk angular incisions in V. This latex contains 30 to 36% hydrocarbon rubber, 0.5% ash, 1.5% protein, 2% resin quebrachitol and 0.5%. The rubber latex may also be obtained from other trees of the genus Hevea (e.g. H. guianensis Aubl. 1775 and H. pauciflora Müll.Arg. 1865). This tree is native to the basin of the Amazon River, which existed in abundance and exclusive features that generated the boom or rubber boom period in American history much wealth and strength to entrepreneurs who settled in the Amazon region and a time of disaster for the indigenous population who suffered extermination and slavery, until the British took over the lucrative business to get the botanist Henry A. Wickham illegally from Brazil seeds of this tree, in 1876, to establish plantations in Malaysia, Burma , Ceylon and sub-Saharan Africa. By 1914 the amount of obtained rubber plantations already exceeded extracted from wild trees.

The worker removed the rubber latex rubber tapper is called in Brazil.

Possession of naturally rich areas in the then existing Hevea Acre area led to early twentieth century Acre War between Bolivia, Brazil and even Peru.
