   Among 59 growing trees farmer groups in Huong Son district, Ha Tinh province established and supported by More Trees project funded by DFE in Denmark, two groups belong to Song Con village, Son Quang commune have mobilized various resources to help their farmers and increase the value of their trees.

   28 farmers of the two groups are growing mainly acacia trees in total area of 60 ha. Most of the trees are grown on the hill slopes, which is hard for transporting. Moreover, there is a stream lying between theses growing areas and the main road, which costs a lot to transfer the trees to the main road. The two mentioned reasons make the selling price of the trees very low, only around 10 million dong per ha. If there were a road across the stream, that selling price would have been 30 to 40 million dong per ha.
