MLDMHI took tree plantations as a community project involving farmers and women in several villages. Over 3400 trees – mostly fruit trees, plus some medicinal plants – were planted over the course of the project. About 80% of the trees planted in the first year and 96% of those planted in the second and third years have survived.
