Deforestation is a problem in Jamaica, as people engage in logging and clearing land in order to cultivate crops. To counter that, some organizations are working in conjunction with the Forestry Department to replant trees. I went to some mountainside in rural St. Andrew this morning. Mount Prospect.
I wrote recently that I am an environmentalist, and helping to preserve or improve the natural world around me is something I try to do as often as possible. But, I wont make a position statement on that now, but simply share some of the images from the site visit. I look forward to sharing pictures later of the planting.
