Since 2012, Santa Cruz has deforested 1,070,151 hectares of forest, according to data from the Forest and Land Social Control and Control Authority (ABT). Records show that 64% of that clearing -691,701 hetares- was made illegally. The figure corresponds to five years of clearing for the expansion of agricultural and livestock activity. The expansion of the urban spot is another cause for indiscriminate felling.
