Land Clearing for Housing Scheme Development (December 2004)

This project was for the victims of the December 2004 SE Asian tsunami, and included a tree survey followed by land clearance.
The projects aim was to clear about 300,000m2 of land in a community based manner on Laamu Gan, to provide for the construction of homes for those displaced by the tsunami.
The tree felling work utilized people from the relief camps as well as other districts, in an attempt to provide employment for these people. A tree survey was also carried out as part of this project, mapping all the major trees present in the designated area.
