This projects involves plantation of 20,000 trees in 2017 monsoon. Project area is located in the Papagni river basin, and stretches across semi-arid district of Chittoor in Southern Andhra Pradesh. The area is located at the tri-junction of the Deccan Plateau, the Eastern Ghats and Western Ghats, the area peculiarly exhibits ecological features of all three. It is marked by broken hill ranges and forest lands on the ridges, revenue wastelands and farmlands on the lower slopes, and valleys dotted with numerous irrigation tanks.

This project will plant indigenous species of trees in common lands of villages to give poor rural communities fruit, fodder, fuel and forest produce. The trees will be planted in several hectares of community protected revenue wastelands of villages Bathinigaripalle, Guttakindapalle, Gonepothulavaripalle, Ramanaikthanda at Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh. The consequent increase in the availability of fodder and improved flow of seepage streams owing to favourable recharge conditions, has spurred collective actions by the local residents
