A roaring saw is cutting down a mandarin tree from its trunk.

Then the cut log is crushed in a wood chipper.

Half of the 600 trees in this farm are removed.

The densely packed mandarin farm now has space between the trees.

INTERVIEW
Gang Sang-hoon / Mandarin grower
At a high density orchard, it takes longer to spray pesticide and less light gets through. That’s why I decided to remove half of the trees.

"밀식재배를 하면 약 칠 때도 불편하고, 햇빛도 덜 맞아서 간벌을 해야겠다고 생각했습니다."

Local farmers are removing half of their trees to reduce fruit production and improve quality.

<타가 IN>
Enough area between trees allows sunlight to hit fruits, which increases their sugar content and decreases acidity.

The wind blowing between trees helps reduce the emergence of pests.

A reduced number of trees also means less work and lower maintenance costs.

The province has set up situation rooms and organized professional crews to aid farmers.

"작업단에서 전체적으로 작업을 다 해주는 체제로 (운영되고 있습니다). 필수적으로 간벌이 이뤄져야 고품질 생산이 될 수 있습니다."
