We have designed a marking of the different species in the collection to highlight some important aspects of each one.

Common name

Common names generally vary by region.

Scientific name
Distribution range

One of the special characteristics of trees is their ability to adapt to different heights. A species can develop in an ideal range of height above sea level where conditions will allow it to develop its full potential. This ability is also known as ecological plasticity.


Groupings by associations. 


Project acronym:

Cundinamarca Forest Botanical Garden

The project is being developed in two sections:

The high mountain station (2,200 meters above sea level) Chilacas Section (Phase 1) that will be integrated in the future with the low mountain station (1,300 meters above sea level) Bambusa Section.

Native Species

It refers to the provenance or origin of the species. It can be native to a country or region. When the JBFC marking indicates: Native species (N) it refers to the species being native to Colombia or America. When the species is not native it is called introduced (I). 

Species recovery

There are different categories of threats to the species. A species is threatened or its multiplication presents a risk, generally due to overexploitation and/or loss of its habitat.

In the Forest Botanical Garden we refer to species with some degree of threat as recovering species, which although they are highly vulnerable, are multiplying and being conserved as a priority of the project.
