Tree Plantation June 2019
Tree plantation has been carried out on 100 acres of non-agricultural private land with 23000 native tree species which have ecological significance and are economically beneficial. The owner of private land, the community and volunteers have been actively involved in the initiative. The plantation will be protected and maintained for three years to ensure healthy growth and survival of planted trees and help regeneration of existing natural trees on the plantation site.
Pits of 1ft x 1ft x 1ft size dug in April and May. In the first week of June, all pits filled with manure and soil and marked the area with sticks for plantation.

Plantation site selected on the basis of the interest of private forests owners, the status of private forests and availability of water. For June 2019 plantation.
