The China Post news staff–The Cabinet-level Council of Agriculture (COA) yesterday kicked off a nationwide tree-planting campaign along with the government’s efforts to build a low-carbon environment in Taiwan.

The campaign will last through the end of March, with the eight branches of the Forestry Bureau under the COA to distribute tree seedlings to interested people and instruct them how to plant and take care of such seedlings throughout the month. In addition, the Forestry Bureau will also invite experts to provide local people with instructions on how to beautify their home gardens and residential communities.
