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.
