grazing have severely damaged the forest cover. He said it is an initiative to increase forest cover of the district to transform it into a green district.
He said that during current season, various departments like school education, RDD, and other forest related departments will be roped in to carry forward the initiative in the district.
ISM District officer Dr Iftikar Husssain said that plantation will not only help in restoring the forest cover of the areas but will also serve as a natural boundary to prevent encroaching of the precious forest land in the district.
