My mahogany trees, continued
This image will give you an idea as to the work and expense of planting and maintaining the mahoganies and other species planted along the road going into Bosque Santa Lúcia. The picture was taken right after the cleaning up operation of cutting back grass, brush, vines, etc The mahoganies are spaced at about ten meters from the edge of the road. A picture was in order because it was seldom that I could afford to have this done. The most difficult part of the job is on the other side of the young trees, i.e., the encroaching forest. As you can see, the higher trees and vines are growing out in the direction of the road looking for more light. Next image.
