Successful Hybrid Poplar Planting

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

Our contract with the landlord for the growing hybrid Poplar trees in the Valley of Ali will finish on March 2016. Within seven years, tens of farmers have benefitted from receiving and growing thousands of Poplar cuttings. Previously, these farmers didn't know about hybrid Poplar planting.

GHNI planted these trees to demonstrate and promote the fast growing Poplar hybrid so that the farmers could learn and plant this type of tree in their fields to prevent root binding bushes and to restore the environment.

Thank you,

The GHNI-Afghanistan Team
