Two of Auriga's team were clearing the reeds in Way Kambas's Rawa Kadut Reforestation Area

April 10-16, 2016: Clearing the reeds

From this week, we wouldn’t plant trees for a while. Instead, we would be focusing on clearing reeds and grass around permanent trees to maximize their growth as well as making sure that they have enough firebreaks in order to prevent them from blaze up to the stalks.

So, for the whole week, we were busy digging trenches encircling each trees. The diameter for each trench is around five meter. Reeds and grass, which are the main disturbance to our plants development were also being wiped off from the restoration area.

Both activities will be carried out for the next upcoming weeks because the whole population of reeds in Rawa Kadut is quite extensive.
