Reforestation with indigenous forestry species, a suitable approach for upland people in Que Phong district, Nghe An province
Posted Date: 13/09/2017
Reforestation and enrichment with indigenous forestry species has been demonstrated as a suitable way for many households and minority communities living close to forests. Depending on the locality and ethnic group, the selection of planting forestry species is differentiated. Choosing intercropping between short-term forestry trees (harvest after 5-10 years), medium term (harvest after 10-20 years) and long-term forestry trees (harvest after more than 20 years) on a specific forest land area does not only help to recover soil and forest, but also provides people a stable, long-term source of income.

Pang village is one of 10 villages in Dong Van commune, Que Phong district of Nghe An province, where villagers have been enriching forest by planting indigenous forestry seedlings. The forest land allocated to households of Pang village is mostly poor because of the formerly regenerated forest after slash and burn. In addition, because of the new resettlement of Cua Dat Hydropower in 2006, the local demand for timber and firewood is very high while bare land and poor forest is pretty much. In order to preserve the forest to generate income and to preserve rare forestry species, women in Pang village have proposed a project for recovery and enrichment of natural forest by planting indigenous forest trees, such as Cinnamon, Magnolia hypolampra, Chukrasia tabularis, Prunus arborea. After 6 months of implementation, the nursery has changed and has created nearly 10,000 seedlings of Chukrasia tabularis, Prunus arborea and Cinnamon, which can be planted on an estimated 6 to 7 hectares of forest area of ​​the 17 involved households.

On September 12, 2017, all 17 members representing 17 households (mostly women) participated in a training course to select tree planting sites, digging holes and intercropping indigenous forestry species, which has been nursed locally. Together with 17 households, members of the Que Phong LandNet, the forestry staff of Dong Van commune and CIRUM staff have involved in the activity. After the training, the households that have cleared the vegetation and made fences actively take seedlings from the nursery to plant on their forest areas. The unfinished households are actively consolidating their fences, clearing the vegetation and will plant the indigenous seedlings in the near future.
