Tree planting festival launched in Vinh Phuc

A tree planting festival was launched in Vinh Phuc province on Monday. Speaking at the event, President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Nguyen Thien Nhan highlighted the significance of the festival, saying it contributes to environmental protection and socio-economic development.

He said tree planting and forest protection should become a routine for Vietnamese people: "We plant trees to prevent soil erosion and exhaustion and increase water retention, helping to reduce the aftermaths of floods. Planting trees also makes the air cleaner, increases wood materials, and expands shade for everyone".
