The Itaukei Land Trust Board has come on board to support Government’s initiative of planting four million trees by the year 2020.
As part of its corporate social responsibility, TLTB Chief Executive Tevita Kuruvakadua says such programs is an avenue in which the organization can give back to the communities.
Kuruvakadua says the programme will help conserve the environment and at the same time improve the condition of native vegetation that supports native species.
Through the tree planting program, TLTB has maintained four TLTB Native Tree Reserve sites in Suva, Nadi, Ra and Labasa including mangrove regeneration sites in Lami Town, Luvunavuaka and Qoma village in Tailevu and on the foreshore areas on the island of Nananu-i-Ra.
A total of 950 native trees have been planted on the forest reserves whilst around 3500 of mangrove seedlings have been planted in the mangrove reserves.
