PagoPago International ecological organization
Economic growth is directly proportional to the destruction of the Planet.
Freedom is directly proportional to the number of trees on the Planet.
PagoPago - international volunteer non-profit organization, that's
main activity is planting trees into deforested wastelands,
parks, gardens, woods.
For this purpose we unite people and teach them to plant trees,
grow tree seedlings, stratified seeds.
The tree planting is connected with the maintain of cultural heritage of the area.
Traditiional way of planting trees:
1. Planting two to three years-old seedlings with well developed roots in the distance 1x1 m. or 1,5x1,5 m. Planting is going in automn and spring, idealy during the rainy season.
Seedlings are planting to the plowed ground in holes made with ax hoe in average 30x30 cm. deep enough for the roots.
After backfilling roots is necessarily to tamped the soil (if we pull the seedlings it must not be removed from the ground).
2. In areas with lush growth of vegetation is necessary every summer for two years to trim grass around the seedling.
3. For fruit trees after 5 years we seated excessed trees to another places.
4. We making preschooll for seedlings growing by natural seeding vegetation.
Tree seedlings are planting from seeds stratified in the fields.
For sowing we use the seed drill.
The basis is a well-prepared soil.
The plantation is necessarily to fence - protection against animals.
Collecting the seeds of a predominantly fruit varieties.
Every year we renew this seed stock and immediately preparing for planting.
Seeds acquire by float from crushed and pressed fruit.
The seeds are heavier than water and will sink to the bottom of the container,
fruit's crumb stays at the surface.
Thus obtained seed stratify and plant in the spring.
