Spring tree planting began to mark tree-planting day on March 2.

On Tuesday alone, well over a million trees were planted throughout the country.

Young people in Pyongyang went through all the processes of tree planting including pit digging and transport of humus soil in a qualitative way.

Members of the General Federation of Trade Union of Korea in different parts of the country planted trees of good species with utmost care around the mosaic murals showing the images of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il and in forests in their charge.

Officials from the Central Committee of the Union of Agricultural Workers of Korea planted over 2 000 trees and flowering shrubs including pine and pine-nut trees at the Mangyongdae Revolutionary Site and women’s union members across the country planted more than 200 000 trees in the Central Botanical Garden and forests in their charge.

The Ministry of Land and Environment Protection, the Ministry of Urban Management, the Ministry of Physical Culture and Sports and others also planted trees at the Central Tree Nursery and other areas.

Ryongsong, Hyongjesan and other districts in the capital city took thoroughgoing steps to ensure the qualitative level of tree planting in an effort to increase the rate of rooting of saplings.

Tree planting was done in all provinces, cities and countries that day while strictly observing infectious disease prevention regulations.

Over 100 000 trees were planted around the statues of the great leaders in Phyongsong and in the mountains in South Phyongan Province. Many trees of good species were planted to form wooden areas in the cemetery of the fallen soldiers of the Korean People’s Army and other places in South Hwanghae Province.

Districts in Nampho saw that chestnut, pine-nut and other wild fruit trees were planted scientifically on the principle of planting right trees in the right soil and in the right time after analyzing the soil and climate conditions of the areas to be planted.

Thousands of trees including Catalpa ovata and clove sent by the North Hamgyong Provincial population were planted in the compound of the Kim Chaek Iron and Steel Complex seething with the production of iron and steel.

Lots of trees were also planted in North Phyongan and North Hwanghae provinces. They gave practical demonstrations of manuring and cultivation and skilfully managed their nurseries to produce saplings of good species in large numbers.
