Afforestation

Bro. Ignaz in his nursery

The growing population creates a great demand for wood products such as firewood or timber. Already since the beginnings of our mission work we have been active in afforestation. Each year a total of about 60,000 trees are planted. In addition to 30 hectares, which we have planted with the Jatropha-tree, a great number of other trees have been cultivated in our fields. A part of the tree seedlings is given to local farmers who then plant the trees in their own fields. In this way they are sharing back home in the work of afforestation. In the Region of Njombe we have on a new field cultivated a forest of 180 acres (72 hectares).
