Research article The establishment of Pinus caribaea (var. hondurensis) in Fiji - aims and techniques.
In an attempt to diversify the Fijian economy, create employment, and utilize the large areas of unproductive grasslands on the western sides of both Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, the Fiji government is proceeding with a very ambitious Pinus caribaea afforestation programme. The Fiji Pine Scheme was inaugurated in 1972 to implement this aim and although still in the early stages of development, present progress is favourable. This paper endeavours to give relevant background information and describe the techniques developed. (no keywords)
