New trees to reclaim Amazon lands

A Brazilian state intends to make cattle ranchers reforest land which they have cleared for grazing.

The government of Acre in the Amazon has established a nursery growing seedlings of species such as mahogany which they will issue to ranchers.

Ranchers may be made to reforest up to 30% of their land.
