Megaplast’s tree planting projects

Reforestation projects ensure that activities of individual projects are balanced with the needs of smallholder farmers and/or communities depending on subsistence agriculture. By using agroforestry systems, farmers can increase soil fertility and agricultural production, thereby boosting produce availability for household consumption or commercial agriculture. Moreover, Megaplast’s economic aid to agroforestry projects can spread risk for smallholders by using different types of tree species, cater for timber, fruit, and provide shade for plants that need to partially be shaded, this technique is called intercropping.
