Description

Status: Active

  • The mission of this project is to reforest degraded areas of Central Borneo/Kalimantan using mixed forest species and methods aimed at increasing long-term survival of planted trees.
  • Over 60,000 seedlings representing 47 varieties of rainforest trees have been cultivated by Friends of the National Parks Foundation and local villagers. The seedlings are nurtured for 12-24 months to so that they have vigorous roots, stems, and crown growth which may help improve survival in poor sandy soils.
  • Planting began in 2004 and as of February 2007, 100 hectares of rainforest have been planted with over an 80% survival rate in the older plots.
  • The trees are maintained for three years until the seedlings are strong enough to survive without maintenance.
