The organization claims that in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, 50 million trees were planted per day in 2016. 35% of the nation’s area was covered in forest at the start of the 20th century. The United Nations estimates that number to be somewhat more than 4% in 2000.

The academy’s personnel today planted 1000 indigenous tree seedlings as part of a nationwide initiative to plant 500 million trees in a single day.

He claims that the goal of planting 500 million seedlings this year will start the mentality of “it can be done.”

According to Mehret, Ethiopia is setting the standard for other African nations and will serve as an example for future generations.

Millions of native trees are being planted, yet they were waiting like seeds. The seed is therefore waiting for someone to come along, plant it in the ground, take it as a seedling to the appropriate location, and do so. Then it will pay us back by producing fruit, being a shed, and altering our environment, he added.

The chief added that this must go on in order to bring about the desired change.

The Green Legacy Initiative in Ethiopia has inspired 25 million Ethiopians to plant 25 billion seedlings, or 250 seedlings each person, over the past four years. Many people think it is, after the Amazon, the most extensive effort for reforestation and afforestation.
