Purpose: DESCRIPTION: Malawi’s national tree, the Mulanje Cedar, is critically endangered in its remaining natural habitat mainly due to over-exploitation. It has been grown successfully in botanic gardens abroad. This project will apply scientific and horticultural expertise to enable its commercialisation in community nurseries, generating income for poor households in Malawi. PURPOSE: Income from Mulanje cedar propagation supports poor Malawian households currently dependent on unsustainable harvesting of cedar, and the prospects of the cedar becoming a sustainable forest product are improved.
