Shrubs to Make up Over 75 Per Cent of Delhi’s Plantations in 2022

With Delhi slowly running out of land for carrying out its annual tree plantation, compensatory plantation and tree transplantation efforts, the annual greening target of 3.54 million saplings this year will be largely met by planting shrubs, which make up about 76 per cent of the total 2.76 million saplings being planted by the 19 greening agencies of the national capital, forest department officials have said. The remaining 779,000-odd saplings, consisting of both shrubs and trees, will be distributed free of cost to residents through the 14 government nurseries. Forest department officials said shrubs make a bulk of the share this time not just because of a paucity of space, but also because ground level vegetation is better at controlling dust pollution and will help make plantation exercises more meaningful.
