Planting Fruit Trees campaign update: July to September 2021

Case study: tree farmer Maggie Tembo

  • Maggie started planting trees in 2015 and now has three separate woodlots of trees at one, four and five years old. She has a tree nursery where she prepares and plants the seeds, caring for them until they are ready to be planted out
  • Maggie and her husband started planting trees as they wanted to create a future for their nine children. When the pine trees reach maturity, they will be able to be used for timber, and the eucalyptus trees for poles. They’re also able to coppice the trees to use the branches for firewood, or to sell it to others to make some money
