Eucalyptus planting starts before approval granted

Vientiane Times, 2 Oct 2014

Boualapha Agriculture and Forestry Company has already planted some areas of eucalyptus in Hinheup district, Vientiane province prior to being given official approval. The company sent the application documents to Hinheup district and the deputy district governor endorsed the scheme requesting the officials give the request sympathetic consideration. But approval has not yet been granted. A provincial official of the National Resources and Environment Department Mr Ounheuan Keophomma told Vientiane Times on Wednesday that the company was planning to plant over 4,000 hectares with local people involved. The provincial officials are now studying the areas where the company has already planted eucalyptus and the other places where they also wish to plant.
