How we do it
We combine ecological science, advanced mapping, and local partnerships to achieve large-scale restoration. Scaling restoration is crucial for the planet, and re.green is uniquely positioned to get there.
Bioflora is one of the main tree nurseries for native seedlings in Brazil.
Founded in 1998 by a team that is now part of re.green, the nursery aims to contribute to the development of forest restoration with high quality standard products and services.
In 2021, re.green acquired Bioflora, and it became an essential part of our business. Headquartered in Piracicaba, in the state of São Paulo, Bioflora is a benchmark for seeds and seedlings training and science. It is our model nursery for research, suppliers, partners and our entire team!
Currently, it has a capacity of 2 million seedlings/year with potential for expansion to up to 10 million seedlings/year.
re.green’s restoration is done exclusively with native species, many of which are regional. In order to restore all ecosystem processes and recover a resilient forest, it is essential that the chosen plants are a natural part of the region’s biome.
Bioflora has already produced more than a thousand types of Brazilian seeds that are part of our biodiversity species. Meet some of them:
- Cariniana legalis – Pink Jequitibá
- Dalbergia nigra – Jacarandá from Bahia
- Handroanthus impetiginosus -purple Ipê
- Hymenaea courbaril – Jatoba
- Paubrasilia echinata – Pau Brasil
We’re restoring thousands of hectares in biodiversity hotspots in the Atlantic Forest, while partnering with local communities.
347 hectares planted
711 hectares of land

Our Ouro Verde Project, situated in Eunápolis, Bahia, is already 100% planted and is currently in the growing phase. This region has endured decades of environmental degradation, with land designated for low-productivity pastures, and we are committed to changing this reality. Over the next 50 years, we will restore and preserve the area, ensuring the perpetuity of nature.
1.300 hectares for planting
2.100 hectares of land

We are expanding our operations in the Atlantic Forest in southern Bahia, this time with the Belo Horizonte project, located 50 kilometers away from Ouro Verde farm in the city of Potiraguá.
The land totals approximately 2,400 hectares, with most of the arable area already planted with a variety of native species from the Atlantic Forest.
8826 hectares for planting
18412 hectares in total
Our first project in the Amazon is of considerable magnitude. Entre Rios is located in Maracaçumé, near the border between the states of Maranhão and Pará, and its forest restoration process began in 2023.
It spans a total area of approximately 18,000 previously degraded hectares.
