India planted over two billion trees since 2007

According to the United Nations’ Billion Tree Campaign, India planted two billion trees since 2007. This brings the amounts of trees planted globally to no less than ten billion. These are fantastic news !

At the beginning of this project, the UNEP wanted to plant a billion trees. This was at the time a very optimistic goal. Now, nott only have we succeeded but we have done ten times more. This is truly encouraging.

All these trees will absorb huge amounts of carbon dioxide, thus limiting greenhouse gases emissions. But we shouldn’t forget we still have to stop deforestation…
