Almendrillo

Almendrillo, also known as camuru, is a long term tree specie that can be planted in combination with other medium term tree species such as, Tejeyeque, Palo Román y Palo Yugo (Crespito).

The planting distance used is 3 x 3 metros and in one hectare a total of 1,111 plants are used. In a combined plantation the following plant numbers are used: 781 de Tejeyeque, 300 de Almendrillo y 30 de Mahony

Pruning of the inferior branches is recomended for the formation of the tree within the 10th and the 15th month after planting. The pruning garanties the quality of the timber and avoids defects

Tejeyeque, Tarara o Huasicucho

El Tejeyeque es una especie forestal adecuada para sistemas agroforestales por el rápido crecimiento de su copa y el aporte de nutrientes al suelo a través de la descomposición de sus hojas, flores, frutos y ramas.

Puede asociarse con especies agroforestales que necesitan regular su temperatura y que crecen con ayuda de semisombra (café, cacao) las mismas pueden obtener gracias al Tejeyeque - mayor acceso a nutrientes, hecho que garantiza una mejor calidad y mayor cantidad de frutos a producir. En forma más espaciada, también puede establecerse el Tejeyeque en plantaciones de achiote, banano y palmito cuando están en su fase final de producción.

Tejeyeque

Tejeyeque, comercially known as Arabina, is a tree specie adecuate for agroforestry sistems for its rapid development and soil improvement.

The specie can be asociated with agroforestry species that need temperature asociarse con especies agroforestales that need regulation of temperature and parcial shade such as cafe and cacao. At the same time these products benefit from an improved soil fertility provided by tejeyeque. By aumenting the distances between the planted trees (3*4 meter), tejeyeque can be established in banana, achiote or palm plantations in their final production stage.
