Even than considering many dense rain forests some bigger in size than entire Pakistan hold only a fractions of a trillion trees... this is simply a ridiculous statement. You cant have that many trees in the area the size of Pakistan
You prob can...just need to destroy civilization...Like I said it prob based on extrapolation of data rather than something experimental!

Now Washington Post is covering this news without anybody asking them to.
That is why I posted it...For once 1 article not typed with BS

Phir darakhto pe hi rehna paray ga, baqi koi jagha tau nahi rahay gi Pakistan ke size ke mutabiq.
Nothing to do with size. Bhutan has about 1.8 billion trees, aur bhutan gilgit-baltistan ka be aadha hai, area k lihaz se. Drakht ka kiya hai, uss ne tou seedha he khara hona hai...

This is amazon rain forest:




its 5.5 million sq. km (about 7 times the area of Pakistan) of thick rain forest:



Even than it has about 400 billion trees. Now tell me how will you fit more than 2.5 times the entire amazon rain forest in Pakistan

10 billion ki baat nahi ho rahi thi?

Also plants / apartment area or small parks / housing scheme that actually has plantation! The parks in our society only has grass! LITERALLY!....there are examples and models of green cities that govt can just purchase and build!
Agree , not only this , but we can also add 150+ million trees if we only use our Road infrastructure , I mean

  • Motorways
  • National Highways (main)
  • Sub-National Highways
  • Express ways
  • other roads (small cities connecting roads and even village roads).
I am sure you had traveled on some beautiful roads in Pakistan which have 0% to 10% green on there sides.We can use them , these trees can add many benefits and they will surly stay their for long time .

not that thick anymore...There are some patches and illegal logging is eating it away...It has decreased in size as compared to what it was ....It is a real cry of nature now!
thats a tangential issue, still you cant put 2.5 times of what is there right now, even considering extrapolation error of 50%, into an area the size of Pakistan.
