Tree-planting update: Episode 36

We visited Madagascar earlier this year, just after the rainy season — and we encourage you to read up on our findings. In this 36th tree update, we take you along on our tree monitoring trip, from the hilly south, across the dry north, to the muddy coast.

Watch to discover why we plant endangered tree species, how challenging it can be to reach a biodiversity hotspot, and why mangrove ecosystems are priceless allies against the climate crisis.

In this episode, we also illustrate one of our monitoring techniques called PCQ – short for point-centred quarter method. It lets us measure tree density, which in turn tells us how many trees should appear on our tree counter.
