It is worth mentioning here that the present government is striving hard to enhance the forests in the country. This is the most appropriate time for planting trees in the country as due to the closure of industry and heavy traffic because of coronavirus for the last few months, environmental condition is favorable and the growth of plants will be comparatively rapid.
In the future when industrial activities and traffic on road will start with the full capacity, environmental conditions may again be polluted and the big area of forest will make the life of the people comfortable due to an abundance of oxygen.
