Taking Photos For Google Maps

Like every year we are taking photographs of each individual tree on myforestfarm. It takes several days to make almost 2000 pictures of all trees. We are carrying a big print out of the map with us so that we can keep the overview. Later we put the pictures on google maps where all pictures of the individual trees can be viewed at their actual geographic position.

Visit After One Year

I have not visited myforestfarm since we planted the forest trees in 2009.
When I saw the first Acacia and Teak I was amazed how big the seedlings had been growing in only one year. Gabby captured the exciting moment on his mobile phone.


When we are very busy, then we don't walk all the way back to San Josep for lunch time. Instead, we take lunch on site at Limuranin. For that we prepare a place with big banana leafs.

I defined a few positions on myforestfarm from where Rodolfo Ferrer is taking pictures regularly. Over the years we will see the growth of the plants from this prespectives. Here are the latest pictures. The sets of photos from the differnt views can be seen in separate slideshows. Check the posts from January 2010.

In September 2009 we lost many Papaya which were planted near the stream at the bottom of the farm, because of a typhoon. The soil is very fertile there and as a substitute Rodolofo Ferrer started to plant vegetables.
