Last year, despite being hard hit by natural disasters, Quang Tri grew 8,600 hectares of forest and 2.5 million trees in different areas. The province also prepared 20 million tree breeds for forestation.

According to Dong, the province planned to plant around one billion trees from 2021 to 2025 and aimed to increase the number of trees this year 1.2 times against last year.

Quang Tri will also develop mechanisms on supporting local people in forestation. The province will enhance activities to raise public awareness on forest protection.
