For the majority of the tree farmers we are working with they will use a hoe for digging holes to plant out their seedlings. Once the seedlings are out of their protective tube, then it’s hands on to fill in the hole and compact the earth around the baby tree.
This season we are working with thousands of tree farmers to plant out a total of two million trees. Jessey here is planting 1,500 seedlings this season. She said, “This is the first time I have planted trees and I am enjoying it. I will raise seedlings again next year with the help of my three children.”
