...We went from planting 1 Billion to now trying to plant 10 Billion.
InshaAllah when we achieve this then we can go for 50 Billion and so on.
Germany stopped deforestation centuries ago with a law that every new-married couple had to plant twenty trees.

This is very good initiative to plant billions of tree. We also need to stop people cutting trees. We need to deal them with iron hands

If we grow 1 tree every 5 meters apart, 1 sq. km will contain 200x200 = 40,000 trees.

Pakistan's total area is 796,095 sq. kms. Its means planting a tree every 5 meters apart will result in 31,843,800,000 (around 32 billion trees).

By this measure, it is a very ambitious plan. meaning government is planning to convert one third of Pakistani land into a relatively thick forest having a tree every 5 meters?

Is it really achievable? If they achieve it (which I believe they can't), Pakistan's forest cover will increase fron 3 percent to 35 % in five years.. unbelievable..
