Spreading benefits to households who cannot plant trees.

A new strategy is underway to involve households who have been unable to plant trees due to shortage of land, labour and/or time. These new farmer participants are collecting seeds and establishing new nurseries. Over the last few weeks, two farmers have been collecting, cleaning and drying mahogany and white teak seed for next wet season tree planting. Seed collection is done outside Soibada and Laclubar due to the unavailability of seeds in these areas. Ten new families will establish new nurseries this year to increase seedling production. Another 50,000 trees will be planted next season!
