One-Million Trees Programme
The Song Saa Foundation, in partnership with the Song Saa Reserve, is seeking to reverse the trend of forest loss in Cambodia by pioneering the largest rainforest restoration project in the lower Mekong. The project, which will unfold over the next twenty years, seeks to return 40 percent of the reserve to natural forest cover, with the target of planting 1 million trees over the next five years.
How we do it
Considerable work has been devoted to the development of an effective strategy for the restoration of rainforest at the Song Saa Reserve. Key to this has been an appreciation that rainforest restoration is about more than just ‘planting trees’ and requires an understanding of a range of disciplines. This entails uniting biology, soil and social science, hydrology and biodiversity conservation in a strategy that ensures the greatest opportunities for restoration success.
