Spratly Islands soldiers mark New Year tree planting festival


The activity aims to realize Uncle Ho’s teachings on planting trees at the beginning of a year.

Over the past years, thanks to sufficient source of fresh water, trees, fruits and vegetables on the islands which are cared for by the cadres, soldiers and people develop well.

The followings are photos illustrating the tree planting on Spratly Islands:

Cadres and soldiers on Sinh Ton Island start tree planting festival.

The main planted trees are casuarinas and barringtonia asiatica.

Casuarinas are suitable for the weather conditions on the island because of its good growth and ability to protect the islands from wind and sand.

Young barringtonia asiatica are taken from mature ones.

It often rains on Spratly Islands this season, creating favourable conditions for the growth of the trees.
