On 21 March 2017 The Guardian reported:
When Antonio Vicente bought a patch of land in São Paulo state and said he wanted to use it to plant a forest, people called him crazy. In 1973 forests were seen by many as an obstacle to progress and profit. Maintaining forests are essential for water supplies because trees absorb and retain water in their roots and help to prevent soil erosion. So with some donkeys and a small team, he worked on his little patch -- 31 hectares (77 acres) of land that had been razed for grazing cattle -- and set about regenerating. More than 40 years later, Vicente -- now 84 -- estimates he has replanted 50,000 trees on his 31 hectare Serra da Mantiqueira mountain range property. Vicente said, 'I didn't do it for money, I did it because when I die, what's here will remain for everyone.' He adds, 'People don't call me crazy any more.'
