This is a place for "Good News" and "Pretty Cool Stuff".....Have at it.

Although the feat has yet to be certified by Guinness World Records, Indian officials have reported that volunteers planted a whopping 49.3 million tree saplings on July 11, blowing past the previous record for most trees planted in a single day.
That record, a mere 847,275 trees, was set by Pakistan in 2013.
A reported 800,000 volunteers from Uttar Pradesh worked for 24 hours planting 80 different species of trees along roads, railways, and on public land. The saplings were raised on local nurseries.

That is really cool indeed!

A good friend of ours who is South African recently lost his mother so instead of sending the usual flowers we planted a tree in her memory instead.

Plant a tree at Platbos indigenous forest

Personally I would prefer that for myself when I pass my own sell by date.
