We’re starting a reforestation project in Gadchiroli this month and have received requests from the community to plant the following non-native trees / plants:
These trees will be planted in areas where the forest is either degraded or where the forest was previously cleared for either agricultural or other purposes.
We’ll be planting a mix of species (about 25-30, all native and suited to the area) and wanted to understand if it was okay to include the above in the mix as well? If we do decide to go ahead and plant them, are there any potential adverse consequences we should be aware of?
Thanks in advance for your help!
