Documentary: Plantation Trees and Water Use

Seventy years of Jonkershoek Paired Catchment Experiments

Plantations use significant amounts of water and South Africa is an arid country. In this documentary Arthur Chapman from One World Sustainable Investments (previously CSIR) takes us on a tour and shares with us the background of seventy years of hydrological research in the Jonkershoek Valley and how the paired catchment experiments work, and how much water trees really use. This documentary was produced in collaboration with GeaSphere and made with funds from the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation.
