Illegal logging, conversion of forests into agricultural plantations, rapid population growth and over- exploitation of natural resources are some of the major causes of deforestation in Thailand. Besides the Thai government's ambitious reforestation initiative, previous efforts have been insufficient because they focus primarily on supply side (government needs) rather than demand side (community needs), price (government budget) rather than value (impact on environment and people's lives).


The villagers participate in site selection, land preparation, care for seedlings before planting, plant the seedlings, and care for the newly planted trees over the project period and onwards. Local communities often have better understanding of the hydrology of the area, weather, crop season and individual tree species, and are ready to cooperate and participate in natural resources conservation activities.

Long-Term Impact

A culture of annual tree planting is created, proposed number of trees planted would be introduced on Buddhist Lent Day; awareness of natural resources conservation is raised among general public. Community ownership and institutions are strengthened by villagers' participation and engagement. A successful example of inexpensive, reliable and sustainable tree planting is set and ready to be expanded to other districts.
