"I have planted over 1000 trees over the last 12 years. I harvested matured trees and sold them to earn some money that I used in building my house. Moreover, the trees are a source of firewood for the family use. Still, I have attained a nice micro-environment due to the cooling and aesthetic effects of the trees. Hence, I find that as the greatest achievemnt I have achieved."
