When we started working in the area in late 2021, we were able to count more than 800 seedlings from more than 30 species that were sown through natural dispersion by the wind, birds, bats, or mammals. We divided the six-hectare area into three sections: a control area, an intervention area (adding on biomass on mounds surrounded by swales), and a food forest located nearest to the ranger station. The dominant tree species we found (more than 50% of seedlings observed) was anapla (Albizia procera). We monitored the growth of one of the anapla seedlings that was growing in an area dominated by yago or samong-samong (Themenda trianda) which means that the soil in the specific patch is rocky. In July 2022, when we first made the measurement, the root collar diameter (RCD) of the seedling measured 1.7 cm and it had a height of 150 cm. At present (July 2024), its RCD has grown to 7.2 cm and its height to 240 cm.ย
