Taiyo Oil organized "Sun(Taiyo)-nurtured forest of Ino Town", the 6th Forest Regeneration Volunteer Activities on Saturday, October 29 in Ino Town, Kochi Prefecture.
Participants learned on the day that thinning helps sunlight penetrate into the forest to promote the growth of trees and enhance the latent water retention capability of afforested land, and spent the morning thinning the forests of sugi Japanese cedar and hinoki Japanese cypress. The afternoon involved a range of learning sessions to gain a further appreciation of the importance of nature
This year will mark the 5th anniversary since Taiyo Oil concluded a partnership agreement with Kochi Prefecture and Ino Town for the "Project of Collaborative Forest Restoration with Environmentally Progressive Companies".
Over the past five years, Taiyo Oil has carried out forest volunteer activities under this agreement. Taiyo Oil will continue to promote forest regeneration activities.
