We have incorporated radical experiments and trials in our reforestation effort to help find ways to restore the native ecosystem quickly and affordably. Such experiments include: intensive tight-grouped plantings, wider spaced plantings, differing clearing and pruning schedules, seed dispersal and variations of species mixes.
Reforestation in this part of the world is not without its challenges. The extreme climate, with its extended dry season followed by heavy rains makes successful reforestation problematic. So we have focused on areas where we can buffer existing forest ecosystems and have chosen species that provide food and shelter for native animals and birds.
