Tree Farmers

Augustino outside his home in Bucoli Village
Augustino Matos da Silva grows teak and mahogany trees on his land in Bucoli -- a village near Timor-Leste's second largest city, Baucau. When the trees mature, he's hoping to make as much as $5,000 dollars for each of his teak trees.  He says he'd like to build a permanent house, one day.
