The development of reforestation programs in Indonesia

Planting 1 billion trees program (One Man One Tree) have been socialized to community organizations and NGO's that concern with green issues in Indonesia.
Billions of trees had been planted, now the trees have aged 3 months to 2 years. We are very grateful that the trees we have planted 80% can be grown successfully, the rest die because eaten by animals and the influence of erratic weather. But this can be considered successful because the trees have grown well.

Supri one of our volunteers say the program of planting 1 billion trees have been going well, just that there are several constraints faced by officers in implementing this program, among others;
1. tree planting land itself has been turned into housing, plantations, rice fields and farm location.
2. Erratic climate changes
3. The existence of irresponsible person who is selling the trees to the company or individuals

Some of the locations that we can have up to date can not be the trees we planted because budget constraints in the program.

We hope to remedy the donors can continue to provide assistance so that the program can be implemented with the maximum.

In addition we also wish to express to the donors so that the program can implemented well though gradually.

In April, our team has done extension phase 2 extension tree planting programs "one man one tree" this is done to support government efforts in the program to plant 1 billion trees (one man one tree).

Besides, we also have provided assistance fruit tree seedlings (1 tree to 1 house). expected in the provision of seeds of this tree can grow the awareness of society to love the tree and plant it, love the environment and preserve the forest.

Climate change is happening in Indonesia is very concerned about even more than that. The heat and erratic rainfall in Indonesia make a number of areas hit by flash floods. This is certainly due to the already unstable nature. Because it is necessary awareness to all parties to keep our earth. And one way to stabilize the earth is a lot of planting trees.

Our target is to plant a million trees, so to support this effort we call upon donors to continue to assist so that this program can be maximized.

We express our thanks to our many donors so that the program is still fulfilled.

One of the impacts due to the eruption of Mount Merapi a few months ago was almost all the trees in about 20 kilometers of Mount Merapi were charred due to being hit with the hot ash from Mount Merapi, so that the dry conditions there are no longer any trees, lush green forests that have now become dry .
This condition makes us to make the greening program in the vicinity of Mount Merapi through our reforestation project on GlobalGiving.
Wikno one of the refugees living in refugee barracks Argo Mulyo village Cangkringan Sleman said that it would be very useful if the location of Mount Merapi was the location of the greening.
The expectation to the donors for the implementation of our programs can help this.
As previously, we say many thanks for all your help.

Let's save our earth from global warming (one man one tree) Climate change to hit our planet makes a lot of natural disasters occur where due to the balance of our planet is not normal. Millions of trees felled each year just for the benefit of wealthy business people. Which can lead to floods appeal, landslides and an increasingly hot air quality. Only one way to prevent it is to plant as many trees as possible. Therefore, let's continue to support this program to save our planet. Since the commencement of this tree planting program, we have planted over 100,000 trees which we planted either directly and we give to residents to plant a decent place for planting trees. Generally the trees that we planted it can grow well because of the weather in Indonesia in general is still the rainy season, so no need to watered every day. The limited budget that we get so few programs can not we carry out are like; 1. Planting of mangrove trees in coastal marine Java 2. Replication of the project to other areas We continue to expect help from the donors so that the program can continue.


The Continuation of tree planting 'one man one tree. "

Since the commencement of this tree-planting program in the year 2008, we have planted more than 100 thousand trees scattered in several places in west Java. Planting is done with some way; 1. direct planting in areas suitable for planting trees, 2. Provision of fruit trees seedlings to land owners and then jointly conducted a tree planting, 3. Giving tree seeds fruit "one-man one-tree" to be planted in front of their homes or orchards or a decent place for planting trees.

In addition to the above activities we also assist the Government to conduct a tree planting extension of "one man one tree".

Some activities in this program will be carried forward, among others; 1. Planting of mangrove trees in coastal marine of Java 2. Replication of the project to other areas. Budget constraints in this project so that some of our programs still cannot be executed so that these project were not fully implemented as we all hope.
