My mahogany trees, continued
This area cut by CELPA is right across the road from the main entrance to the Bosque. The undergrowth here is relatively clean because it was being prepared for another entrance and parking area. In the image you can see three mucajá palms (Acrocomia aculeata) and one taperebá (Spondias lutea) on the ground. Only three meters back of these fallen trees, right under the power line, are four young mahogany trees, which were left standing. I guess in part because the power line crew recognized them as being planted and in part because they posed no danger, for the time being.
