Chaweewan said the planting was part of the company’s “Green Thailand” project begun in 2008 with the goal of restoring and returning plants back to the nature for Thailand to become green again.
“With help of the media, we can build and plant awareness regarding nature and campaign for planting trees in Sriracha,” she said.
Among the kinds of trees planted were Burmese rosewood, cassia fistula, yang and others.
