  1. Why not go plant these trees in mahaut ( micoud) instead which would help protect the water catchment area thus improving water quality in micoud. Guess we need to make them labour constituencies look good. En Rouge

    • Check the Department of Forestry. They've been on a national drive to get trees planted and welcome the opportunity to work with civic minded individuals. This is the third or fourth leg of the programme. If you need help with this project check the Lions Club of Castries or Kiwanis.
