Five Million Trees Planted in a Day in Green Ghana Project

Jun 11, 2021

Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo was amongst those who had planted 5 million trees across the country on Friday as part of measures to make Ghana greener.

The initiative was launched by the Lands and Natural Resources Ministry, in collaboration with the Forestry Commission in April this year. It saw several members of the diplomatic corps, players of the Ghana Black Stars, along with ordinary citizens plant to support Ghana becoming greener.

Africa News reports that millions of seedlings of various tree species had been distributed to the 16 regions of the country in the Green Ghana project.

The effort is to preserve and protect the country’s forest cover and the environment at large. Africa News reports that it is estimated that only 80 percent remains of Ghana’s forest areas since 1900. Ghana’s Lands Minister Samuel Abdulai Jinapor described Friday’s event as a great achievement for the West African country. Jinapor said that the trees planted, Wawa, Nim, Rosewood, and Shea, would be of help to the country’s economy in the future.
