A dome for storage!

In preparation for the scheduled activities of planting the 100,000 black pine seedlings grown by the nursery workers and who are the tsunami survivors along the 20 hectares coastal area of Natori City near the Sendai Airport this April until May, we built a dome to store the materials needed for the reforestation related activities such as plastic containers, fertilizers, hoes, sickles and nets. With the help of Maeda Corporation staff, net fences were also installed within the perimeter of the dome to protect it against the strong wind damage.

Prior to its building, the materials and equipment which are often use by the nursery workers were cramped in OISCA Natori Office. Sometimes they are burdened to bring the tools in their own respective homes. Now that the dome provides a safe and secure space to house the newly purchased reforestation tools, the nursery workers and volunteers from Tokyo and other parts of Japan who are expected to be involved in the massive tree planting activities on May 24are no longer doomed to bring their own planting tools.

Meanwhile, in collaboration with the local government of Natori City, we are organizing a symposium to be held on February 22 targeting 500 participants with an objective to further encourage the involvement of the locals after showing the progress and future plans of the project.
