One of the farmers who has finished planting out their first year of seedlings is Angel Matala.
Angel is 33, married to Grace and they have three daughters. He said, “We have a big problem with deforestation but we need wood so planting these trees is important. I am also growing orange trees and I have chillis that I grow and sell.”
Angel’s four siblings – Stanley, Pilot, Mallias and Arnold – are growing trees too. He continued, “We have distributed our land and between us raised 21,580 seedlings.”
