Every Day, Man Plants Trees In Same Spot. 37 Years Later, His Masterpiece Takes Our Breath Away!
The young teenager Jadav "Molai" Payeng decided to help nature out a little bit and started planting trees over thirty years ago. He planted the seeds next to a very and deserted sandbar closely to his birthplace in the Assam region, India. Jadav wanted to create a habitat for wildlife and oppose people who were cutting trees down.
For almost every day for 37 years, the man planted seeds and has successfully built a whole new ecosystem. It's estimated that the forest now approaches a size of 1,360 acres. For comparison, Central Park only has a surface area of 778 acres.
