Species of Rosy Trumpet Tree (“Roble de Sabana”), Golden Trumpet Tree (“Corteza Amarilla”), Royal Poinciana (“Malinche”) and Jacaranda beautify the surroundings

June. Coyol Free Zone’s commitment to the rescue and restoration of the flora of El Coyol de Alajuela, has motivated this Free Zone and the companies it hosts, to develop different initiatives that contribute greatly to the environment.

Members of our administrative staff and our clients Bayer, Smith & Nephew, Medtronic, Philips, and Nevro, recently planted 1,060 native trees of the species Dama, Jacaranda, Royal Poinciana (“Malinche”), Golden Trumpet Tree (“Corteza Amarilla”), Wild Tamarind (“Lorito”), Trichilia Havanensis (“Uruca”), Rosy Trumpet Tree (“Roble de Sabana”), Autograph Tree (“Copey”), “Tucuico”, Little Olive (“Aceituno”), Acerola Cherry (“Acerola”), “Manzanita” and Surinam Cherry (“Pitanga”).

“Every year, Coyol Free Zone plants more than 100 trees to strengthen its natural resources and provide a better habitat for wildlife, spaces with abundant fresh air, and scenic beauty. This year we took up the initiative again, and the companies even developed their own planting spaces with their employees. In this way, the park makes an important contribution to the local environment,” said Carlos Wong, Managing Director of Coyol Free Zone.

This initiative joins other permanent maintenance work that the park carries out in partnership with experts to ensure the preservation of the park’s century-old trees, which are more than 300 and 500 years old.

As part of its vision of sustainability, 13% of Coyol Free Zone’s land has been preserved as a form of conservation since it was founded in 2007.
