To the supporters of our Mt. Fuji Project

We wish to extend our sincerest gratitude to GlobalGiving donors for your generous support.

Based on the survey result that we conducted last year, we found out that 25% of the growing trees that we have planted in our site are in great need of tender loving care. Strong typhoons that hit Japan, heavy snow falls in winter season, and deer infestation affect the growth or worse will result to their mortality. We felt the immediate need to re-raise the fallen trees, replace the rotting bamboo sticks, and reinstall the nets to guarantee the survival rate of our project site. Unfortunately, because of corona, we have no choice but to cancel all the scheduled volunteer related activities. As a consequence, we are lagging behind the schedule.

 From October to early November 2020, within our network (OISCA staff and OISCA members), we managed to recover a total of 1,100 fallen trees with the help of local foresters. It is impossible for us to implement activities from December to April 2021 because of snow, but our activities will resume in May 2021.

 Meanwhile, as part of our endeavor to promote the sustainable use of Mt. Fuji’s resources, we are supporting the launch of small and medium-size local businesses venturing into the utilization of forest resources. One of these companies venture into the extraction of aroma oil from shirabe trees. In February, we donated 1,000 pieces of 30ml shirabe aroma alcohol spray to health care centers and healthcare personnel’s fighting corona.

 On March 25, we organized a general meeting involving the 21 companies and organizations involved in our project to discuss the project`s current situation and future plans on how to cope up with the corona situation.
