Currently, the area covered by Project CEDRUS has 100ha of Atlantic forest (secondary stage), 80ha of degraded pasture (at different stages) and 30ha of eucalyptus sp (first cut made in 2006). The areas of pasture will be gradually recovered through agroforestry management practice, using the principles of natural succession, covering soil, pruning etc. The idea is to observe the development of species consortium used, record the data and compare the methods to push forward the agroecology research and extension.
In the case of experimental models, the areas of planting will be 'prepared' using the most varied methods (aragem, gradeagem, mowing and planting holes and manual in line, among others). It will be planted agricultural species (corn, beans, pumpkin, girasol, cassava, banana, papaya, etc.) along with tree species and shrub native of the region (fruit, honey, medical, etc.), both for use timber and non-timber. The goal is to enable the ecological restoration allied to the sustenance food, economic and social, observing always relevant environmental legislation.
