Last year’s target was 5,000,000 “we exceeded our target” by planting more than 7,000,000 and hoping on Ghanaian to help do more as expected of this year 2022.
Hon. Martha Kwayie Manu speaking to the media made it clear that, planting of trees across Ghana will help reduce global warming. She said, the site allotted for planting are all ready for planting and majority has commenced in the early weeks of May 2022. Therefore, everyone should join hands in Green Ghana program.
She added that, most of the trees planted last year flourish well but to her notice some illigal chainsaw operators and bush fire has spoiled most of the plant. The government has a statutory instrument put in place to govern chainsaw Operations therefore it is necessary for any interested person to come to the Forestry commission for guidance.
The Regional Assistant Manager of Forestry Commission in the Western North Mr. Opoku Antwi said, last year’s program embarked was great which was supported by churches, students and the public.
