Frankincense regeneration


Thanks to the generosity of their trunks, providing high-value incense, frankincense trees (Boswellia papyrifera) may be the most wonderful trees on Earth. Adding to their mystique is the fact that it remains impossible to plant their seedlings. Over the past years, EthioTrees and the community of Amanit worked on a strategy of intensive natural regeneration. Finally, the hard work pays off. During a field survey with the teams of EthioTrees Ethiopia and Belgium in May 2023, an incredible density of new Boswellia  babies was observed!
