What is the management plan in effect for this area?
Rancho Lobos' Master Plan envisions the cyclical exploitation of these resources over 10 to 20 Year cycles. Including a year round extraction of Mesquite and Iron Wood for processing, and Jojoba during the summers only.
Jojoba yields are expected over an area of more than 3,000 Hectares with a 60% to 70% rate utilization, yielding 8 Metric Tons per summer.
Wood processing and extraction for Charcoal is programmed over the entire area, extracting Only dead/fallen trees. With a 75% rate extraction over a 10 year cycle yielding over 48,000 cubic meters, or 4,800 cubic meters per year.
The Ranch also counts with a Forestry Protection Program that has been recignized at a National level.
