A rubber forest
is a plantation
with tall and imposing leafy trees
That shelter many species of fauna and flora. They also provide work to many people due to their high need for labor. Every rubber tree, with a life span of +40 years, is tapped on average once every week. Thanks to its physiological characteristics, the tree provides the latex or cup lumps from the sucrose generated by the trees leaves which is used to produce everyday products like tires, gloves, balloons, and even latex beds and pillows, to name a few. An average plantation of 45 hectares can provide work for up to 20 people who have a direct impact on their families.
