Trees of Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s trees provide habitats for a multitude of insects, birds, and monkeys. Their life cycles are complex, and many of these trees rely on animals to help spread their seeds. Humans are drawn to these trees for their fruit and lumber. It’s natural to want a bite of sweet, tropical fruit, but harvesting trees for their lumber has put some species at risk for extinction. Anywhere is participating in reforestation efforts to keep these species alive.
