Planting of Water-friedly trees at the Likoko Membea water catchment to replace Eucalyptus.
The Likoko Membea and Bokwaongo neighbourhoods have been going without water for over a decade now as the present population has overstretched the carrying capacíty of the old source. With the construction of the new source, the growth of eucalyptus trees around the catchment is an imminent threat to water supply in the years ahead . Hence there is a need to fell down the eucalyptus trees and replace with other tree species like prunus africana, cordia dichotoma, lucena and artocapus hetetophylus.
