Tree Planting in India

Timberland India shared the following photo account of their first tree planting event held in Janakpuri, New Delhi last month.  Over the course of the day, they planted 118 assorted palm trees and provided much needed greening for a neighborhood park.

We look forward to sharing more photos and tree planting stories as Timberland India works toward their tree planting goal: 1,200 trees by December 2011.

On July 31, TBL India launched its Tree Planting Program under the guidance of Peepal Baba (pictured above) from Janakpuri in New Delhi. Born as Prem Parivartan, Peepal Baba got his popular nickname from the type of tree he plants. He is a tree evangelist who started planting trees at the age of 10.
