After a selection process in partnership with the local city government, the project carried out the restoration of 24 hectares of forest and the conservation of 41 hectares of Atlantic Forest in five rural properties in the hydrographic basin of the Sesmaria River, in Resende-RJ. Thirty-two thousand trees of native species were planted, the properties were fenced to protect from cattle and fire, and a 3-year maintenance program was implemented. Payment for Environmental Services (PSA) mechanism enabled each owner to receive payment in cash proportional to the area. The project registered another 200 hectares for future planting.
