CDA Launches Tree-Plantation Campaign in Islamabad to Increase Green Cover

ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) in Islamabad, Pakistan has launched a tree-plantation drive aimed at increasing the city’s green cover.

The campaign was initiated after the CDA recovered land that had been unlawfully occupied by land grabbers in various locations of the city including the Kuri Area, F-7, F-10, F-11, E-12 sectors, C-12 sector, Sarai Kharboza along the Grand Trunk Road, and the Margalla Hills National Park.

The CDA Chairman, Noor ul Amin Mengal, directed the authority to take measures to prevent re-encroachment of the retrieved land and enhance the green spaces across the capital city.

CDA is also collaborating with citizens, particularly educational institutions, to maintain the natural beauty of the capital city, which was developed on the concept of a green city.

CDA aims to prevent re-encroachment of the retrieved land and increase the green spaces across the city through a comprehensive tree-plantation drive.


  1. CDA should plant fruit trees and issue at least five plants on each Islamabad’s CNIC so that they can also actively participate in it, such five plants will be looked after well and survival possibility will be very high

  2. What tree plantation? Apparently, palm date trees have been planted, of which a majority of them have died. And this has been happening for the last two decades. I fail to comprehend CDA’s love affair with date palm tree which are unsuited to Islamabad’s environment.

  3. CDA must start now the plantation on both sides of the Margalla Avenue as well as the development work should also be started in Sector D-13, and C-16 and inhabitants should also be rewarded very soon so that the development of these areas should not be delayed any more.

  4. It has become so common watching while driving that motorbikes with so called branches thick ones taking from shakarparian highway and srinagar both sides even bikes coming out of rawal dam clubroad side. Same along park road. Autumn is over but these helpers on bikes are never ending stories.
