Source text:

La presencia de los paneles fotovoltaicos, en conjunto con un vía perimetral, requiere por parte de EL DESARROLLADOR una medida de mitigación del impacto visual.

- Para el efecto, se buscará proveer de vegetación frondosa, nativa de la región, adaptada a la estación seca y a bajas precipitaciones durante la estación climática lluviosa sin afectar la productividad de la planta.

- Se construirá una franja arbórea en los linderos del terreno de la planta solar sin afectar la productividad de generación de la planta

- Se registrará con fotografías, fechadas, el avance de los trabajos, a fin de permitir futuras comparaciones del estado del terreno al finalizar la construcción de la obra, y el aspecto visual que irá adquiriendo una vez creada la ***zona de amortiguamiento visual arbórea** aquí descrita.

My try:
Work progress will be documented through dated photos with a view to comparing the state of the project site once the construction stage is completed and also to observe the visual aspect that will have the site once the visual buffer zone...?

Visual tree buffer (zone or strip)
Explanation:
A tree buffer zone is used to
Enhance appearance and increase property values in the City.
 Provide visual buffers and transitions between dissimilar land uses and protect abutting properties
from potential negative impacts of neighboring development and to preserve the character and value
of a property and provide a sense of privacy.
 Improve the visual quality of the City of Wilson and minimize the potential impacts of development
such as noise, dust, and glare of lights.
 Improve the quality and efficacy of stormwater run-off while also providing opportunities for
climatic control and reduced electricity costs.
 Contribute to the overall quality of life and the built environment

I think a buffer zone is more accurate for your intended use in the context. A buffer strip seems to be more used for water bodies

As seen in this site, you can also use tree buffer, without zone or strip

Reference: Zone or strip?

Reference information:
I'm not sure if this is meant to be a "zone" or a "strip", but here's a couple of ideas:

Trees along streams are so vital to the integrity of streams in climates like Ohio’s, they are given the name “forested buffer strips.”

Trees and wooded buffer strips

Trees planted on buffer strips can be visually attractive, help stabilise banks, provide valuable wildlife habitat and contribute leaf litter to the watercourse, but bear in mind that areas of wetland used by breeding waders are better left unplanted.

http://adlib.everysite.co.uk/adlib/defra/content.aspx?doc=11...

A buffer strip is an area of land maintained in permanent vegetation that helps to control air, soil, and water quality, along with other environmental problems, dealing primarily on land that is used in agriculture. Buffer strips trap sediment, and enhance filtration of nutrients and pesticides by slowing down runoff that could enter the local surface waters. The root systems of the planted vegetation in these buffers hold soil particles together which alleviate the soil of wind erosion and stabilize stream banks providing protection against substantial erosion and landslides. Farmers can also use buffer strips to square up existing crop fields to provide safety for equipment while also farming more efficiently.

Buffer strips can have several different configurations of vegetation found on them varying from simply grass to combinations of grass, trees, and shrubs. Areas with diverse vegetation provide more protection from nutrient and pesticide flow and at the same time provide better biodiversity amongst plants and animals.[1][2]

Many country, state, and local governments provide financial incentives for conservation programs such as buffer strips because they help stabilize the environment even when the land is being used. Buffer strips not only stabilize the land but can also provide a visual demonstration that land is under stewardship.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffer_strip

A buffer zone is generally a zonal area that lies between two or more other areas (often, but not necessarily, countries), but depending on the type of buffer zone, the reason for it may be to segregate regions or to conjoin them. Common types of buffer zones are demilitarized zones, border zones and certain restrictive easement zones and green belts. Such zones may be, but not necessarily be, comprised by a sovereign state, forming a buffer state.

Buffer zones have various purposes, political or otherwise. They can be set up to prevent violence, protect the environment, protect residential and commercial zones from industrial accidents or natural disasters, keep prisoners intent on escaping from rapidly acquiring hostages or a hiding place, and have uses in several other scenarios. Buffer zones often result in large uninhabited regions which are themselves noteworthy in many increasingly developed or crowded parts of the world.

neutral  Jonatas Ribeiro: There are many hits for both buffer zones and buffer strips. I tend to think however that a buffer strip is more related to water bodies

  -> Thanks, Jonatas. I'm not sure, from the looks of things, "buffer zone" seems to refer to a larger area, but I'm no expert.
