Give people land
When people own and live on a block of land, they plant trees!
All levels of government spend money on tree planting and then have to spend more money and Human Resources on nurturing these trees.
How many trees in your residential area? What is the average per acre? Who takes care of those trees?
When people buy a block in a new estate, they build their new home and then start on the garden. The average home owner will plant 5 to 10 trees which works out roughly 40 trees per acre. These trees are nurtured to maturity, at no cost to the tax payer
Residential developments contribute enormously to greening there local area.
Deregulate our zonming laws and let people living and plant on their own land
