Diverse native tree species, such as Shorea obtusa, Shorea siamensis, Dipterocarpus tuberculatus, Dipterocarpus obtusifolius, Dipterocarpus alatus, Hopea odorata, are assisted by “mycorrhizal fungi” to enhance the survival and growth. Some examples of mycorrhizal fungi, or commonly known as wild mushrooms, are Astraeus sp., Russula sp., Amanita sp. They play a very important role in soil nutrients cycle.
Therefore, our foundation utilizes the benefits of these mushrooms to prepare healthy seedlings for higher survival rate when transplanted in the field, and to increase soil fertility. And finally…we will restore both wild mycorrhizal mushrooms and healthy forest.
