Planting in Mwambe

by Community Forests International on April 23, 2009


The shehia (village) of Mwambe began planting as the short monsoon season (masika) commenced in order to give the trees the rainfall necessary to survive. Next season, Community Forests International hopes that Mwambe will be the site of a carbon credit planting project, building on their current planting activities, in which trees are being planted for fruit and timber production.

In a carbon credit project, Mwambe would be planting native trees, shrubs and plants in order to restore the degraded landscape in a process called ecological restoration. Mwambe has access to a massive planting site and community environmental awareness is high, making the site perfect for future ecological development.
