Notes
Abraham met twenty two Bukoma A and they moved around checking how members planted trees. They moved ten homes and three of them did not do it right, they were planting Mvule close to each other yet they were told from a tree to another there must be thirty meters which is ninety feet. They were advised to correct that mistake to make it thirty meters. They said most members like Musizi rather than Giant Lira because Musizi they say it is easy to sell, it is easy to sell Musizi timber than Giant Lira. The guy who deals in timber said that Giant Lire timber is a hard wood but people have not yet discovered. Abraham told them that they will get more Musizi but what they have to do is to keep on planting other trees on their own like the back cloth tree which helps in feeding the animals during dry seasons and suggested each to plant five. They are going walk in groups checking how other members have planted their trees because some members planted the trees in a far distance and the reason being there is where they have big land. They will learning how to care for trees in the next meeting.
