Tree planting on mother’s day


360 trees of 10 different species were planted in Don Chao Poo Forest this morning. Today is a public holiday in Thailand — it is the Queen’s birthday and Mother’s Day is celebrated too.

About 30 people of all ages got together to plant the trees and when they had finished they had lunch and ice cream at a local restaurant.

Here are some of the trees waiting to be taken to the forest:




Loaded up and ready to go to the forest:

And a few of them enjoying their lunch:

It wil not be easy to monitor the new growth, but we will try to do so. We will be pleased if 50% survive.
