PLANTING

patch forest reforestation

Planting site is a previously cleared area which was used for storing felled timber trees. Once logging operations were stopped and cleared, these areas are rapidly over grown with vines and grasses which, without a shaded environment from mature, trees quickly out compete young saplings. The vines need to be cleared by hand prior to replanting and then revisted ever few months during the inital year to ensure the young trees are not smothered.
