Reforestation

At Gibbon Experience, we believe in trees: we protect the most ancient ones and build tree houses in a few others…

In return, we’ve been planting trees since 2009 following two reforestation schemes:

  • A commercial approach on the farmland surrounding the National Park, with an aim to foster sensible logging practices with valuable, fast growing tree species, such as teak.
  • A non-commercial approach on the degraded parts of the National Park, with diversified tree species to support canopy reconstitution.

We consider reforestation in and around the Nam Kan National Park a strategic long-term tool to complement day-to-day conservation activities. In this equation, carbon absorption is not even accounted for. Each year, 100 000 young trees come out of our dedicated tree nursery.
