Carbon Sink - Micro Forestry
Tree growing in Simbu is an ancient tradtion passed on from generations. Tribes in Simbu grow trees regularly to sustain their requirements for fuel and building materials. Trees are planted to improve soil quality and reduce soil erosion. Trees are also planted on ceremonial grounds to mark special events and purposes. Parents and grand parents plant trees for future generations.
When you chop down a tree, you must plant two seedlings for replacement.
Airmen lodge supports tree growing tradition and is now a Carbon Neutral Lodge in PNG.
Whenever you spend a night at Airmen lodge, you are supporting us with our tree growing program and helping us to reduce CO2 emissions in our world.
