Forestation project 2010

  1. 1. Forestation Project2010   <br />Planting trees alongside Mano a Mano’sChoquechampi reservoir to decrease erosion and preserve the reservoir<br />
  2. 2. The trees arrive onsite, where they are counted and organized.<br />
  3. 3. After being unloaded, the trees are grouped according to where they will be planted.<br />
  4. 4. The tools for the job are set up – picks and buckets.<br />
  5. 5. A 50-meter hose is connected for watering the trees.<br />
  6. 6. Community members hike up the hill carrying the trees in bags on their back.<br />
  7. 7. Planting begins.<br />
  8. 8. Community members plant the trees in groups.<br />
  9. 9. Newly planted trees; more than 5,000 trees total were planted!<br />
  10. 10. Water for the trees is carried to the site by hand.<br />
  11. 11. The entire community works on the project. Education is key to ensuring success; without someone (in this case Mano a Mano) helping to provide a plan for maintenance it’s unlikely the trees would survive (this is what happened in a nearby community that planted trees with no strategy for basic upkeep).<br />
