47,000 trees planted!

Farmers at Laclubar and Soibada have finished tree planting for this wet season. In total, 47,000 seedlings of mahogany, casuarina and white teak were planted. The 24 farmer run nurseries grew 49,000 seedlings but some died or were too small to plant this year.

Field staff continue to do final measurements of plantation areas, tree size and non-tree areas for inclusion in the Project Design Document to be submitted to Plan Vivo Foundation at the end of April.
