This project provided Empresa de Servicios Publicos de Heredia (ESPH) with recommendations on how they can help the communities of Heredia improve their tree planting projects. ESPH donates trees to communities who wish to participate in urban reforestation projects, but does not know about the long term care and maintenance of the plants. We were able to identify that participation, community member empowerment, and methods for long term evaluation were the major components most communities were missing from their tree planting projects. We recommended that ESPH address these problems by requiring communities to demonstrate proper planning before they receive trees. We also developed several methods to help the communities improve the structure and execution of their projects.
