Uttarakhand mulls plantation drive in other states

The Uttarakhand Forest Department is mulling a plantation drive in Uttar Pradesh’s Bundelkhand region and parts of Rajasthan to clear the backlog for compensatory afforestation over the next two years.

Compensatory afforestation is done against the transfer of forest land for non-forestry purposes like the development of dams, mining and the construction of industries or roads.

In compensatory plantation, 1,100 plants are planted over an area of one hectare.
