Reforestation in Takeo is underway. Torch Tours are proud to announce that this month we have planted 600 trees in the rural Cambodian province of Takeo.

Reforestation is important in many ways. Trees combat climate change, clean the air by producing oxygen, they prevent soil erosion and provide food.

Tree planting is a great opportunity to bring people together, involving both communities and visitors in a peaceful activity that improves the quality of life for everyone. Furthermore, everyone plays an important role at a tree planting event.
