Progress in Pitumarca
In April 2015, an agreement was reached with the local authorities in the district of Pitumarca to initiate a forestation project. The aim of the project is to plant half a million trees during the next planting season, which started in November. This collaboration has resulted in important progress in terms of the creation of new tree nurseries. Initially, Pitumarca only made use of the nursery in the municipality of Charcachapampa. Now, four more nurseries have been created in Karhui, Nueva Libertad, Huasapampa and Pampachiri.
Pitumarca is one of eight districts in Canchis province, which is located in the region of Cusco at an elevation of 3,570 meters above sea level.
