What would be our world without trees?
This burning question is more relevant to us than ever before in today’s world. Every passing day, Earth is losing more trees than it can grow. Beside global warming, deforestation of massive green lands by human hands has really produced some drastic levels of environmental changes in recent years.
But seeds of hope are still in the ground!
Across the globe, people and governments are taking initiatives to restore the beauty of our beloved home. In Pakistan, government of KPK province launched Billion Tree Tsunami campaign in 2015 to restore 350,000 hectares of degraded forest landscapes.
After the project achieved its restoration target in shining colors, newly elected federal government of Pakistan launched a 5 year, country-wide 10 billion tree plantation drive this September. This new project has received overwhelming response across the country and it is progressing ahead steadily.
Trees are indeed our planet’s lifeline and keeping them standing tall is the only way we can secure our survival on the only life supporting planet of our solar system.
