C’garh plants 83L saplings in 3 years

Thursday, 23 June 2022 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

The Forest and Climate Change Department has planted 83.31 lakh sampling across Chhattisgarh and brought 7,400 hectares under green in the past three years.

Principal Chief Conservator of Forest Rakesh Chaturvedi said the ‘Hariyali Prasar’ movement was essential for environmental conservation, development of barren land and for          increasing the income of  people whose livelihood is based on minor forest         produce.

To encourage plantation in private land, the                 government is providing          50-5,000 free of cost plant saplings to farmers, he said in a statement on Wednesday. The farmers also get                    government aid to look after the plants.

Plants of amla, teak, mango, bamboo, sandal, miliya dubia, clonal eucalyptus, jackfruit, drum stick and custard apple were planted under the scheme, he said.
