Making Silage in Vichada
By: Dexter B. Dombro
La Pedregoza is a 2,650 hectare (6,545 acre) tree plantation and natural reserve in the Colombian department (state or province) of Vichada, in the Orinoco River basin. The plantation uses sustainable practices and natural silviculture, seeking whenever possible to emulate the climax vegetation of the region, using organic fertilizers and biological controls. The focus of the plantation is to produce forest products that do not contaminate the soil or water systems, while actively practising conservation and biodiversity preservation.
