Peace & Nature is working on forest revitalization on Mt. Rokko to create an abundant and sustainable environment for our children.

Today, we did maintenance work on the area where we planted cherry and maple trees this March and last year, and retied their ropes. We were joined by iCraft Corp., a company with a high CSR awareness, a university club working hard to build water infrastructure in Nepal, and Peace & Nature members interested in vegetable farming and forest revitalization, for a total of 16 participants.

Many of the participants were beginners, so we explained the basics of how to work safely, the importance of maintaining heritage forests, and the Japanese oak wilt issue, then got to work.

Some of the trees we planted had been dug up by wild boars, but most of them are doing well, and we can’t wait to see how they grow.

Though the participants endured a hike followed by hard labor, they worked safely and reliably, and we achieved great results in a short amount of time. Thanks so much for your help.

We were lucky enough to catch a dry day during the rainy season, and we enjoyed a pleasant day taking care of the forest.
