Our field staff,ย @Cleo Hechanova, an agroforester who graduated fromย @Occidental Mindoro State College, with Taobuid fromย farasfasanย (lowland) andย tibabuidย  (highland) communities, led the outplanting of hardened wildlings to establish tree guilds in the ecosystem restoration experimental area in Landing. The soil in Landing is very poor, so the holes where the seedlings were planted were filled with additional biomass, the area around the seedlings was mulched, and a small round swale was constructed. Theย practice is inspired by the tree guild concept in permaculture, where different species of wildlings are planted around an existing established young tree. In the case of Landing, the established young trees are usually anapla (Albizia procera), almuyo (Ficus nota), tiyagtagย (Ficus septica), kalamayo (Mitragyna diversifolia), and bagyuan (Antidesma ghaesembilla).ย
