A group of environmentalists from Ciudad Guzman noted that the "stumps" (the trunk is left standing after the cut) no mark that denotes a legal authorization; It was learned that the land in question belongs to smallholder Alejandro del Toro, who would not even be informed of the use.

The complaint was already lodged with the delegation of Semarnat, which in turn gave evidence to the delegation of the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa), which pledged to carry out an operation inspection and closure, which has not been executed.
