Fence for Tree Planting Project at Katunguru School

In February 2010 a fence around the approximately 6000 trees was constructed. This was because they have experienced a lot of problems with buffaloes who scratch their horns against the trees and thereby destroying them. In addition the seedlings were destroyed, so it was difficult to raise new trees. The fence will not stop elephants, though, but the type of tree planted is not liked by elephants, and earlier the elephants have only come once or twice a year, and for those occasions the fence can be repaired again.
