PT Pertamina, through its commitment to the environment and local communities has funded the planting of 10.067 trees in Semarang and Kendal Central Java. 61 local farmers will commit their land for this community forestry project and will be the owners of the trees, which will provide them with an income when the trees are mature and ready for harvesting. Trees4Trees provides the free seedlings along with training and mentoring to help the farmers to plant and care for their community forests.
