here cannot be economically viable planning and the progress of Hindustan, if planting of agroforestry trees is not made as an
integral part of it. Believe it or not, "Salvation of Hindustan lies on massive planting of multipurpose agroforestry tree species nnd their protection from enemies." Trees play crucial role in sustaining biologi

Practically, this target cannot be achieved either be Government or private organizations alone.
