Since 2014, Pakistan has been making headlines for their enormous efforts to plant trees. By 2017, the Billion Tree Tsunami movement was responsible for over a billion trees planted, 350,000 fresh acres of fresh green. Now that times are uncertain and the world is experiencing a mass pandemic unlike anything humans have seen since the early twentieth century, Pakistan is not only staying true but is reaching out to the country’s currently vulernable population and recruiting select individuals to plant trees for the government. 

    Reports are stating that workers are making 500 rupees a day (about 3 US dollars), and the new tree planting task force is slated to provide 63,600 jobs to Pakistanis.
