110,000 New Trees to be Planted in Cambodia’s Angkor Region

Cambodia’s Apsara National Authority (ANA) will plant 110,000 trees in the Angkor area this rainy season to improve the natural beauty of the region and provide environmental benefits.

The trees will be taken from four different plantations – VIII Hectares, Takeo Temple, Mondol III, and Balloon – with the type of trees varying, from first, second and third-grade trees to ornamental and fruit trees.

Trees are considered an integral part of maintaining and increasing the value of the Angkor World Heritage Site and play an important role in collecting water, conservation, and supporting peoples’ livelihoods. They also decrease wind speed and cut down the damage done to the temple’s stones.
