Trees for the Future

These Acacia seedlings are on their way to the fields in the Philippines, transferred using a bare-root method. Acacia trees are useful for shade (to protect sun-sensitive crops), plus they help to protect the soil from erosion during tropical deluges. They also fix nitrogen in the soil, improving conditions for other trees and plants, and local people use their fast-growing limbs for fuel-wood and local construction, like the beams framing this tree nursery.
