RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Fundação Parque e Jardins (FPJ) is the government organization in Rio responsible for planting and removing trees in city parks and private areas. They are in charge of the maintenance of 2,000 parks and plazas, in addition to monuments, fountains and playgrounds.
FPJ does not pod, remove or plant trees in streets and sidewalks of Rio city. This responsibility has been left recently to Comlurb, the largest Municipal Urban Cleaning . . .
