The tree planting event took place at the Greenland International Industrial Centre (GIIC) in Cikarang, West Java, approximately 52km from the SMEC office in Jakarta. The location was strategically chosen due to its proximity to a Trees4Trees project area planted in 2022, ensuring easy access and protection from potential industrial development.
SMEC employees and local villagers planted a total of 500 trees last 7th of October 2023. A diverse selection of tree species, including teak, acacia, and mahogany, was planted. The choice of species considered community preferences, local land conditions, and seedling availability, featuring a blend of hardwood and fruit trees.
SMEC will continue to collaborate with Trees4Trees in the coming months to monitor the project’s progress and ensure its long-term success.
