We have a long-term project studying reforestation in some of the most damaged rainforests of Borneo. Our research focuses on identifying the best tree species for replanting and optimal light, water and nutrient conditions for survival and growth.
We have set up two nurseries in the Sebangau National Park. The first contains over 3,000 trees from small seedlings to young saplings that are collected from the forest. These are nurtured in the nursery until they are ready for planting at which point they are transported to our second nursery at the reforestation site which can accommodate up to 35,000 trees.
The results from our research feed back into our seedling nursery and replanting protocols to ensure ongoing improvements and increased success of our efforts to reverse the deforestation of Borneo’s tropical rainforests.
