In order to prevent silting of the Inle lake, to keep the mountains surrounding Inle lake lush and green and prevent soil erosion, to discourage farmers from practicing mobile farming and to impart a sense of appreciation for environment to the local people, Htoo Foundation has completed a 100-acres tree plantation at Kandaw village in Nyaung Shwe Township, Southern Shan State. The trees planted are teak, cassod tree (Sennasiamea), eucalyptus, flame tree (Poinciana regia), laburnum (Cassia fistula).

The plantation covered an area of 100 acres surrounding Lwe Tant dam and it is expected that the trees will prevent soil erosion and silt depositing into Inle Lake. An additional 100-acres plantation is planned at the watershed area east of Mya Thein Tan village. Htoo Foundation endeavors, at its own expense and the co-operation of the public, to preserve the environment by planting trees with technical assistance of the forest department.
