“Quesungual” is an agro-forestry method whereby the forest is not cut down. Instead, planting is done among dispersed trees that are pruned to allow light to filter in.
Hurricane Mitch’s path through Honduras in 1998 not only caused 10 thousand deaths, it destroyed 40% of the crop in the country. However, in Lempira, on the western part of the country, planting done through the “Quesungual,” method survived the forces unleashed by the wind and water.
