Site Selection and Preparation
Before initiating any planting activities, sites need to be carefully selected as suitable for reforestation. Factors such as soil type, climate, elevation, and proximity to water sources are considered. This preliminary assessment ensures the success and long-term viability of the forest.
To ensure a healthy and abundant supply of seedlings, nurseries are established near the planting sites.
Local community members are often involved in the nursery operations, providing employment opportunities and empowering local communities.
The nurseries carefully nurture seedlings until they are ready for transplantation.
Native Tree Species
Our Planting Projects prioritizes the use of native tree species in our planting projects. Native trees are well-adapted to the local environment, making them more resilient to pests, diseases, and climatic conditions. Some common native tree species planted by Our Planting Projects include:
- Narra (Pterocarpus indicus)
- Molave (Vitex parviflora)
- Mangkono (Xanthostemon verdugonianus)
- Kamagong (Diospyros blancoi)
