    Description

    There is a distinct lack of technical information on the propagation of native tree species from the dry tropical forest ecosystem in Mexico. This ecosystem has come under heavy human pressures to obtain several products such as specialty woods for fuel, posts for fences and construction, forage, edible fruits, stakes for horticulture crops, and medicinal products. The forest nurseries of the Government propagate only a limited number of native species to carry out forest plantations, and some of them are dangerous species. The objective of this paper is to present information to propagate 10 native trees useful to carry out the operation activities using traditional methods. The species are: Palo dulce (Eysenhardtia polystachya); guamuchil (Pithecellobium dulce); tehuistle (Acacia bilimekii); tepehuaje (Lysiloma acapulcensis); tepemezquite (Lysiloma divaricata); cubata (Acacia cochliacantha); cuahulote (Guazuma ulmifolia); brasil (Haematoxylum brasiletto); chapulixtle (Dodonaea viscosa) and cuachalalate (Amphipterygium adstringens).
