220 million trees planted in one day!
By Jinny Throup
In a government campaign to tackle climate change and improve the environment, more than a million people in Lucknow, the capital city of the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India, worked together to plant 220 million trees in one day. Dozens of species of saplings, including 16 fruit species, were planted in over a million locations including 60,000 villages and 83,000 sites in forest ranges. The target number was 220 million saplings because that is one for each of the 220 million people living in Uttar Pradesh. They started at sunrise and their goal was achieved by 5:00 pm. This was the second huge tree planting campaign in Uttar Pradesh, as 50 million saplings were planted in one day back in 2016.
