If you think a single person is just too small to make a difference, you should read up on Jadav Payeng, the "Forest Man of India".

When he was 16 he started planting trees on a deforested sandbar. He made it a habit of planting at least one tree every single day - over the course of the last four decades.

His forest now encompasses an area of about 1,360 acres / 550 hectares and is home to not only over one hundred elephants, but also monkeys, tigers and deer.

Be the change you desire!

@fribbledom Love it, and found the book that you were probably referring to: The Boy Who Grew a Forest: The True Story of Jadav Payeng - goodreads.com/book/show/407022

Thanks!
