Do the numerous tree planting drives in Nagaland actually help in contributing towards reforestation? Give Reasons

•    The tree plantation drives in Nagaland have indeed contributed to reforestation efforts. These initiatives combat deforestation, promote biodiversity, and mitigate climate change. By planting native species, raising awareness, and involving communities, Nagaland addresses the decline in forest cover and environmental degradation. Notably, these drives align with the state's ban on single-use plastic, emphasizing sustainable practices for a greener future.
•    It is yes because it help us for other many thing

•    No. Most of the tree planting drives are just for media headlines or government officials carrying out drives to fulfill directives from their departments. Once the trees are planted, most of the trees die as very few people actually care about the trees once the publicity programmes are over.
•    Needs government of the day be genuinely plan out a targeted action plan.
•    Mainly, planting trees for photo op the primary reason, no follow up in nurturing the planted tree after its been planted.
•    No, not at all. Out of the thousands of sapling planted only a fraction will survive to grow into trees. Tree plantation drives is good publicity but does contribute meaningfully to deforestation. To see that the saplings grow into trees, the entire community should be involved in tending to it.
•    Because the number of trees cut down is more than the trees planted. It takes only some minutes to chop a tree whereas it takes years to grow a tree.
•    They don't give proper care once the plantation drive is over. Adequate steps should be taken to ensure that the trees mature.
•    No. It's a waste of saplings. There should be a better way of afforestation
•    •    We should plant more and more trees every year and govt. must fully emphasize and took initiative and focus on the conservation and protection of our environment before it's too late, as we can all see how the climate is changing alots year by year and day by days, scarcity of water is one of the problem we are severely facing right now almost everywhere where there are water available before. Therefore the government should concern and focus on this field, because the individual and NGO's alone couldn't able to do it. Thank you
•    I really can't chose either of the above because how much we plant at last what's left. Nobody takes care of it and in Nagaland instead of reforestation it would become a place for the people to spit. That's it
•    The question is..... Are we keeping the biodiversity in mind while choosing the plants?
•    Have come across trees being planted on World Environment Day every year but then most the trees don't thrive. Even in my place I've seen saplings dying and rotting by next week. I really don't know the cause for that but yes when we do the planting thing saplings should be planted according to its season, climatic condition of that place etc etc though i don't have much knowledge about plant or plants,
•    Most people plant trees on Environmental Day for social attention. But only few care to nurture them. Planting is an easy task but the process of nurturing them could be a problem.
•    There's never a drive as such to be called a earth/biodiversity saving one in the first place....planting a couple of thousand saplings on a World Environment day with no follow ups is what makes in news in a corner of a newspaper. To see big realistic changes, we need a mass movement with real understanding hearts for a substantial result.
•    Planting off season won't help. Saplings should be planted during April/May n post planting follow ups should be done periodically.
