Bapu always makes efforts to make Solapur District green and environment-friendly. In order to protect the environment, we should not cut the trees off and should plant more of them. For the purpose of nurturing and culturing the trees, 'Vruksha Sangopan Yojana' (Tree Rearing Plans) has been started from 2012 in Solapur. Various organizations and housing societies were involved in this scheme.
The societies and organizations involved in this scheme are encouraged to plant and rear the trees. Fund of Rs. 100 is given every year, for every tree planted by them. The interesting fact is, when 2 crore trees were planted in entire Maharashtra, a record of 24,000 tree plantations just in two hours was made in South Solapur.
