With many trees planted, it is expected that the collective efforts of the National Line Agencies will achieve the objective within five years to fifteen years from now. The realization of this Program is not like a magic and is far from over but conservation and development should be inculcated in every one's mind to attain sustainable development of the National Greening Program.
