1 Billion Trees Planting

by Averina Geffanie Suwana | 27-11-2012 17:55 recommendations 0 recommendations

In participating 1 Billion Trees Planting Program 2012 from Indonesian Ministry of Forestry, Sahabat Alam friends and I are inviting to be part of its program on 22 November 2012.

Sahabat Alam friends are also performing Indonesian Traditional Dances in the opening ceremony. We are also briefed on the technique of planting trees by the staff experts from Indonesian Ministry of Forestry.

Based on the Indonesian President's Rule No. 24 Year 2008, Indonesian Government has decided that 28 November is celebrated as Hari Menanam Pohon Indonesia (Indonesian Planting Trees Day) and December is Bulan Menanam Indonesia (Indonesian Planting Trees Month).

    Hai Unmesh, thank you very much for your posting. For info, Indonesia would like to reduce the carbon emission 26% before 2020. As quoted from the Indonesian President's Speech during the National Planting Day 28 November 2012, He mentioned that this planting trees program is not only the government program but it is also the Indonesian's people movement in trees planting. http://www.republika.co.id/berita/nasional/umum/12/11/28/me6qt0-sby-gerakan-menanam-pohon-adalah-gerakan-rakyat

  • Unmesh Datta says :
    Great initiative indeed...all the very best....but just one question : To my knowledge one tree requires 20 sq m area and to plant 1 billion tree you require a vacant huge land area (approximately 2% of entire Indonesia land area) ...I hope it is not a political agenda..

    Neha, How are you? Let us know when you visit Indonesia again. We could bring you to see all interesting and green places in Jakarta, Bogor, Bandung and islands in Indonesian Thousands Islands. You could also plant mangroves, native Indonesian trees, coral reefs and release hawksbill see turtles back to its nature.
