KP Govt Fulfills Promise of Planting a Billion Trees in 3 Years

In just three years, the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has fulfilled its promise of planting a billion trees in the province.

The ‘Billion Tree Tsunami’ project was initiated by Imran Khan in November 2014 and it hoped to reverse land degradation and deforestation in the formerly forested KP.

The landscape, which was deforested previously, is being restored naturally by the project and will help efforts to combat climate change and mitigate the risk posed by higher temperatures.

It can help in transitioning to a greener economy for Pakistan and the project has already been commended on an international level as an example of how to deal with the impact of climate change.

It was reported that by late 2017, the Tsunami goal had been met and the project surpassed its aims significantly by restoring and planting trees across 348,000 hectares of despoiled forest landscapes in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

  • Claim doesn’t match with the ground realities. I personally think million Vs billion trees

  • what is the prof? how can we counter verify this claim? the writer didn’t mention a single authentic source. it seems that the writer belongs to a PROPTI social media.

  • Thank you IK. The people who believe on everything geo says should watch the documentary about this project from BBC. Many of those stopped watching BBC after it exposed the corruption of NS

  • False claim like many others false claims while doing the opposite. Now burning forests in KPK to hide their corruption and incompetence.

  • abay bhi ye imran timepass kar raaha hai is ke bas ke baat nai hai mulk chalana. martial law lagao aur in sab poore parliament ke choti karo.

  • Tree coverage Pakistan is only 6% compared to land. Most countries tree coverage is 40%+. We need to massively plant more trees all over Pakistan.
