Reforestation at Samanala Tank Catchment area
Reforest Sri Lanka joined with the University of Sabaragamuwa to forest areas with no forest cover along the Samanala tank catchment area on the lands belonging to the University. During the first wave on 16th October 2015, we were able to establish 250 plants which will be looked after by the University until they become resilient to the weather conditions.
We were delighted to have the presence of academics from three different universities at the event; The University of Sabaragamuwa, Moratuwa and Kelaniya. Na, Weera, Palu, Burutha, Milla, Mahogany, Teak, Sandalwood, Tamarind, Mee, Pihimbiya etc. were among the 25 types of trees that were planted.
