The race is on to salvage valuable wood from millions of typhoon felled coconut trees in the central Philippines. Experts believe that salvaged coco lumber could be used for urgently needed temporary shelters, as the Yolanda (Haiyan) super storm left four million people displaced, just over two months ago in the Visayas region. It also killed thousands and devastated livelihoods across nine of the Philippines’ poorest provinces. If stored correctly, the lumber could also prove a potent way of securing thousands of livelihoods. But, time is running out as the trees need to be recovered before May 2014, according to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
