Fast-Growing Hybrid Poplars

Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

People in Bamyan province took notice of the new hybrid poplars that are a model and experimental tree in their area. Every year we see numerous farmers coming to receive cuttings. They have seen the poplar as a useful tree, suitable in the cold climates where they grow faster.


Despite the water pollution in Dara Ali, where our trees are located, many of the farmers planted poplars in their fields. We educate people on how to plant and grow them and ask them to teach their neighbors the same as we did.


These farmers are very thankful for GHNI’s helping them prosper in Yakawlang District.
