In El Salvador's Chalatenango hills, hit hard by civil war in the 1980s between the army and Marxist insurgents, many trees were damaged or destroyed in the hail of bombs and bullets. After the conflict ended in 1992, the inhabitants of Montañona, a small town 98 km north of San Salvador, began mobilizing to restore the 21 hectares they owned, and to protect the surrounding forest landscape of more than 1,400 hectares.
