Venezuelan migrant in Brazil helps make what could be world’s fastest tree-planting machine
Lucrecia Franco, Gordon Durnin
Brazilian entrepreneur and inventor Marcello Guimaraes has designed what he says is the world’s fastest tree planting machine. The 3rd generation version is up and running in the northern Brazilian state of Roraima, while a new one is being developed specially to reforest degraded areas.
To pass his ideas from paper to reality he hired a Venezuelan migrant, who fled his home country seeking a better life in Brazil. Meet Luis Peña, an agricultural machinery technician who believes the machine can stop global warming.
