TOWARDS 1 MILLION TREES REPLANTED IN THE SEBANGAU NATIONAL PARK, INDONESIAN BORNEO
1. Which native tree species survive best when replanted in deforested tropical peatland?
2. Can use of reed baskets (bakul) and shade for planting both increase seedling survival
and provide local community benefits?
3. Does a Community Nursery approach enhance community benefits and provide a suitable model for upscaling replanting?
