Tarawe Forest Reserve is among the 9 forest reserves located within Handeni District Council and it is situated at Mazingira ward. This forest was destructed many years ago due to human economic activities such as charcoal making and searching for fuel wood. The aim of this project is to restore the nature of Tarawe Nature Forest Reserve by planting a total of 50,000 indigenous trees including some indigenous tree species such as Ficus sycomorus, Tamarindus indica, Afzelia quanzensis and Cedrela mexicana. The Tarawe forest reserve are under severe threat of being cleared through human activities particularly agriculture, fuel woods collection, hunting and construction activities due to poor management. The forests are managed by Local government and serves as water catchment, soil protection, and source of timber, non-timber for millions of rural people and biodiversity hotspot home for hundreds of species.
