Overall comment

Overall comment
according to the newspaper, this company leases the land from the Fanalamanga SA - a state company having large scale wood plantations for decades (eucalyptus and pine plantations - partly used by the company for charcoal and wood ; the company has some budget constraint and was not able to manage correctly the plantation, then lots of neighbours came in to harvest the wood and make charcoal).
