During the start of the reforestation tasks, Mayor Ramón Lemus declared that actions like these are “a celebration to life”, facing adverse situations that are lived around the world (and locally).

“This is a much needed “lung” for Celaya. Today we know that we live in difficult times, we know that violence is making a presence in our daily lives, but we know Celaya is strong and today we want to celebrate life,” said the mayor.

The planted species were: leucaena, timbre, papelillo and palo fierro that are prosperous in this region and particularly in the Celaya soil.

320 different species, for a total of 2,479 plants and trees have been reforested during this year and are part of the 4,255 that will be planted eventually.
