Description: Organized together with NICE (Never-ending International workCamps Exchange) and supported by Greening Asia fund since 2002. The forests problem is serious also in Mongolia. Before 1990, the forests are covered 10% of land, but 7% today. It's caused by cutting trees without any controls, forest fire and global warming. Other side it takes a long time to grow trees in Mongolia and May and middle of October is the only seasons to plant trees in Mongolia.
Type of Work: We will plant trees in Mongolian workCamps Exchange`s camp and some other places.
This is the only season in Mongolia to plant trees. There are increasing activities by some organizations to plant trees but it takes a hundred or more years to be grown, so we should also join this movement by global power! Part of Greening Asia
