Over 12 Miillion Trees Planted within One YearOne Billion Trees
Ulaanbaatar, February 9, 2023 /MONTSAME/. N. Batkhuu, Advisor to the President of Mongolia on Environment and Green development policy:
In the framework of the national campaign “One Billion Trees,” more than 12 million trees have been planted throughout the country within the last year, and the seed reserves increased by 4.5 times compared to the previous years. A total of 320 domestic entities have contributed to planting these trees.
According to preliminary estimates, only if we transplant about 100-150 million seedlings annually can our goal to plant one billion trees be accomplished.
To help translate this decision into a reality, we need to strengthen our capacity and solve many problems, such as improving technical feasibility, citizens' skills in planting trees and preparing more specialists in this field.
