Native trees help burned Pantanal

Neiva Guedes reported on her Facebook page that she had travelled into the Serra do Amolar, the imposing mountain range in the centre of the Pantanal, where there had been serious fires last year and discovered some of the burned pasture land had been replanted with native trees such as manduvi, acuri and bocaiuvia.
