In the area around the mother tree nursery Ondangwa several branch tree nurseries have been founded forming a network of ecological islands. The tree nurseries are led by persons from the local population. They especially consider the local conditions (population, ground, water balance).
In the branch tree nurseries seedlings are grown for the local market as well as for large scale plantings.
The network improves the populism and the acceptance of the project. Our network of small branch tree nurseries shows the population in the project area the global importance of the forest ecosystem without making them cover a large distance.
Meanwhile we have installed the following branch nurseries:
• Olukonda Museum
• Ondangwa Königswald (king forest)
