Dosel S.A. operates the Rain Forest Aerial Tram, and is developing a similar ecotourist site near Jaco, Costa Rica, the Central Pacific Aerial Tram. This company would like to restore to secondary and primary forest the guanabana fields and dense secondary growth of the new site. After archival research, interviews, field observation, and a questionnaire for tram guides, we recommend methods and tree species for developing a tropical forest regeneration project for this site. To maintain Dosel S.A.'s standards for ecotourism, our plan also recommends community and educational programs encouraging ecological awareness.
