Plant Trees Everywhere



November and December 1982



Plant trees everywhere and make our country green in the interest of future generations.

(Message for a conference held by the People’s Liberation Army to review the experience in afforestation and to honour outstanding units and individuals for their work.)


This work should continue for 20 years and be more solid and successful every year. If it is to have substantial results, there must be a workable system of inspection, with rewards and penalties.

(Comments made on December 26, 1982, after reading a report by the Ministry of Forestry on the nationwide movement to plant trees.)
