At the Kampung Sungai Klewang nursery in Royal Belum State Park, Perak, over 1,000 forest tree seedlings nurtured for more than a year and a half are being transported carefully in wheelbarrows to waiting boats. They will be taken to an area where local communities had previously practiced shifting agriculture and replanted.
