Activity targets, ideas, etc.
On the 13th, we were able to deepen our understanding by having Prof.
Fujiwara explain the Miyawaki method of tree planting and the types of
trees to be planted. By sorting the seedlings into 100 containers in
advance so that the seedlings would be of the appropriate species and
ratio, we were able to plant them evenly.
On the 13th, 63 employees of Yamada Bee Farm and their families participated.
On the 24th, only Yamada Bee Farm employees planted trees. Tree planting was
carried out on the premises of Institute for Bee Products & Health Science of Yamada
Bee Farm, and 30 trees per person planted about 3,000 trees.
- Although it rained a little on the 13th, there was no problem with tree planting,
and the trees were planted smoothly.
- Since it is hot even in May, we felt it would be appropriate to hold a tree-planting
ceremony in March or April.
- In the future, we plan to continue planting trees in planned tree planting areas
on the Yamada Bee Farm site, as well as regularly planting trees on land
introduced by local governments.
