New Trees for a New Year

HeroTREEs: 2 year old Acrocarpus Flaxinifolia
HeroTREEs: 2 year old Acrocarpus Flaxinifolia

From October to December 2018, our HeroTREEs colleagues and farmers worked hard to ensure a successful close to the year planting a whopping 3,718 new trees. These new trees will directly contribute to reduced greenhouse gases, increased water quality, and an increase in the carbon content of the soil.

In addition to new trees being planted, Choma Street nursery prepared and nurtured 2,200 new seedlings ready to be planted in 2019. Of those seedlings, there were: 

900 Acrocarpous
800 Pinus
300 Simbaulanga
100 Ficus
100 Misumba

A significant amount of training was also undertaken in the last quarter of 2018 with 90 farmers from Ruvuma, Mgambazi, Tulo, Choma and Kisosa in attendance. The training covered a number of topics including the collection and storage of seeds, their plantation in polythene bags, nursery establishment and the care of new seedlings.

A new year brings new goals for both APOPO and Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania, and with your help we'll be working to find more indigenous species in both seed and seedling form to establish a brand new nursery. We'll also be working hard to transplant the seedlings which have reached maturity and are ready for planting. 

Both APOPO and Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania thank you for your continued support of this important project and we hope you'll continue to support us into 2019.
