Philippines is one of the most deforested areas among other counties around the globe. The total forest area of the Philippines has decreased from 70 % to 20% in few years which has led to many problems such as floods and landslides.
The Philippine law parliament is now concerned about its environment has decided to pass a law that states that students in order to graduate  have to plant more than 10 trees while in college.
According to this law, every student before graduating has to plant more than 10 trees this will increase about 525 billion trees in a generation. Statistically almost 500,000 students graduate per year hence planting trees will lead to about 172 million trees per year which will eventually lead 525 billion new trees in a generation.
