DSC01486 Tending to Tree Tubes

As part of the Othakarhaka forestry program, seedlings (in tubes) are obtained through the District Forestry Officer and then maintained and nurtured by OK volunteers in mini tree nurseries throughout the area. They are then nurtured into saplings which eventually get planted to replace trees used for medicinal purposes, fruits, fuel, etc. Othakarhaka ensures that a new tree is planted wherever one is cut, and they protect the trees while they grow.
