This association has counted, since its beginning, on the company’s support through training in the prevention and handling of forest fires, as well as technical accompaniment for the association’s strengthening and the forest tree nursery’s operation, in which the association produces different species of plantlets.

Drummond Ltd. will continue supporting these activities which fortify the Forest Compensation Programs and the environmental recovery.
