Mangrove tree planting at nature park in Jakarta

Volunteers from P.T. Mitsubishi Jaya Elevator and Escalator planted 200 mangrove trees at Nature Park Angke Kapuk on December 21,2011. Located in a municipality of north Jakarta, Nature Park Angke Kapuk is a nature conservation area for preservation of the mangrove ecosystem. The main vegetation of mangrove trees cover an area of 100 hectares to prevent abrasion, which has worsened in recent years due to legal and economic conditions, which foster illegal businesses with adverse affects on the environment. Planting mangrove trees requires getting into the swamp and placing the tree into the mud at least 20 centimeters deep at determined places.
