Srinagar: Advisor to Governor, Khurshid Ahmad Ganai on Friday launched a massive Chinar plantation drive in Kashmir with a message to society at large to plant, protect and save the region’s symbol and identity.

Speaking on the occasion, Advisor said that one way of saving these rare trees was to plant ten new ones in place of each tree being felled. He said that it was the responsibility of civil society to cooperate with the government and help to protect these rare trees, which has huge botanical potential and cultural value in the Kashmir.

“The Floriculture Department has distributed Chinar trees in all the districts, which will be simultaneously planted during the drive,” Ganai said. “If we want to do something big in saving the Chinar trees, we all must work in close coordination and help them to grow in a suitable environment,” he said.
