Tree Planting in Action

The main activities at the community of Bethel for the third quarter of 2013 consists of:

  • Rehabilitation of the nursery: After the first transplantation period from June to August, over 80 percent of seedlings at the nursery completely transplanted. Currently, we are about to replant seeds in the nursery to have enough seedlings for the second planting season. 
  • Maintenance of the nursery: Maintenance work at the nursery is performed to manage the remaining seedlings. After meetings with the community, it has been observed that there is excessive demands for fruit seedlings especially breadfruit (somnifero)
  • Transplantation: With the strong participation of the community of Bethel, we got to transplant more than 7,000 seedlings during the period from July to August . The main transplanted seedlings are: Cacia , Citrus , and Cedrela odorata,
  •  Training on management of agricultural and animal waste: With the high cost of chemical fertilizers on the Haitian market , to prevent cases of nutrient deficiencies at the nursery , TREES trained technicians on composting techniques using plant and animal waste.
  • Creation of mini-forest: With strong participation of women's organizations in the particular area ( Fanm vanyan Bethel ). We created a mini drill consisting essentially of Cacia , species that can adapt in extreme weather conditions. This association is very active in the area  and willing to mobilize a lot more of women. 

Plans for the Fourth Quarter consists of:

  1. Trainings and workshops for the community 
  2. Nursery replantings  
  3. Preparing sites for tree planting 
  4. Hosting community meetings to solve common issues linking to free grazing in the area 
  5. Tree planting 
  6. Agricultural infield technical assistance
