As the family ventures into tree plantation of Aquilaria malaccensis, we are advocating to establish economically and environmentally sustainable agarwood production, to prevent extinction of forest trees, to support socio-economic development by supplementing the income of rural populations, and to build an agroforestry development model that is sustainable and can be applied nationwide.

In particular, this plantation project will provide protection for the endangered species mentioned above through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Wildlife Culture Permit, find the best method to optimize resin production or the artificial inducement in plantation-grown trees, and assist the population and authorities to accomplish future independent and profitable agarwood production.

Climate change refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. These shifts may be natural, such as through variations in the solar cycle. But since the 1800s, human activities have been the main driver of climate change, primarily due to burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas.
