An Afro-Colombian carrier loads a rough sawn timber onto a truck during wood transportation in the port of Quibdó, Colombia, 1 October 2019. Tropical hardwood is extracted from the Pacific rainforest, driven down the Atrato river to the sawmills and then sold in the ports to wood merchants. Low quality wood is transported throughout the country, used mainly for construction purposes, while the fine woods (choiba, mahogany etc.) is exported exclusively to China.
