Spanish term or phrase: las maquinas equipadas con la cubierta Fate Forest
Does anyone have any idea what "cubierta Fate Forestal" is? The text is about a trip into the Misiones jungle in Argentina. Another sentence in which it appears is, "Es en este medio ambiente donde trabaja la cubierta Forestal, sobre tierra, barro, piedras, troncos y restos de maleza." In the next sentence, "la cubierta" is referred to as a "product" as in, \"Condiciones verdaderamente duras y agresivas, que solo un excelente producto puede resistir con exito.\" Thank you!

Forest canopy / cover

Forestal's Spanish language documents list their *cubierta Forestal* as part of a series of ecosystems (forests with various types of lumber). A definition: " 'canopy': The cover of branches and foliage formed by tree crowns" A definition of forest cover: " All trees and associated plants which cover the ground in a forest." In my Web searches, I can't locate "Fate" in conjunction with either *cubierta* or *Argentina*. It sounds like a proprietary (Forestal) reforestation program.

Fate Forestal tire (I am sure!)

Fate is a brand of tires in Argentina such as Goodyear. I just checked with someone at Fate and he told me that the model Forestal is a special tire for tractors used for work in forests. That's why it was also referred to as a product. Write to me at if you need further help on
this translation, I live in Argentina.
