Inspection of sawing of timber for the project

Inspection of sawing of timber for the project
This photograph shows the director inspecting the timber being used for the school foundations. The timber being used for the project is Eucalyptus, a tree very common to the area. The eucalyptus tree makes the land arid by reducing the water content of the soil. There is an on-going campaign to discourage the planting of this tree around catchment areas, so by utilizing the eucalyptus, we will ensure that the replacement trees will be more appropriate for the soil and surrounding plants.
