Bhutan celebrates newborn Prince by planting 108,000 Trees!

All 82,000 households in the country planted a tree while the remaining 26,000 were planted by volunteers in special plantations in 14 districts. “Each sapling encapsulates a prayer and a wish from the person who planted it to His Royal Highness the Prince so that just like the bountiful tree, the Prince also grows up healthy, strong, wise and compassionate” said Lekphell.

The number of trees planted was precisely 108,000 as “108” is a sacred number in Buddhism.
