ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the reforestation at Haiti. It presents a photograph featuring a farmer claiming that the country and the people have had a long history of being exploited. It illustrates that deforestation is exasperated by the country's level of poverty where often trees and charcoal production are two sources of income for rural communities. It highlights the commitment of the Peasant Movement of Papaya farming cooperative to plant trees over 100,000 in the future.
