Ipil-Ipil Planting

Ipil-Ipil is popularly known in the Philippines for firewood and is useful in reforestation work. It is also much used as a cover crop and is a good exterminator of cogon grass.
This is a small tree, 2 to 6 meters high. The leaves are compound, 15 to 25 centimeters long, with hairy rachises.
We planted a few thousand ipil-ipil wildlings along the borderline to prepare the upper area for reforestation next year.
