Speaking at the ceremony, Minister Dang Quoc Khanh said that the “Tree Planting Festival” following Uncle Ho’s words has truly brought great benefits to the country and has become a good custom of our people in spring.

According to Minister Dang Quoc Khanh, after 3 years of realizing the project of planting one billion trees approved by the Government leader, the country has planted nearly 770 million new trees with a total mobilized capital of nearly 9,500 billion VND.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has always actively participated and coordinated with ministries, branches and localities to plant trees and forests in many good, practical and effective ways, he added.

With this year’s “Tree Planting Festival” program in Ha Tinh, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the central province have chosen Cam Xuyen district, a locality with full natural conditions and diverse natural landscapes with many hills, rivers, lakes, plains and coastal strips.

On this occasion, Minister Dang Quoc Khanh requested all levels and branches and called on all comrades and compatriots to enthusiastically participate in planting trees and forests, while stressing the necessity to raise awareness and take effective measures to protect forests and prevent deforestation, forest burning and illegal forest exploitation.

On this occasion, the organizers plan to plant 120,000 casuarina trees to block waves at Song Yen beach in Thien Cam town, Cam Xuyen district to contribute to blocking wind and sand for people; and plant 300 banyan trees from the heroic land of Dien Bien in the hometown of Hero of the People's Armed Forces Phan Dinh Giot./.
