Chonburi plants trees to honor HM the Queen


Chonburi officials gather for the latest round of tree planting in honor of HM the Queen.



Continuing the celebration of HM Queen Sirikit’s 78th birthday in August, Chonburi continued its efforts to plant its share of 7.8 million trees being seeded nationwide in her name.

Since the project started on the queen’s 77th birthday on Aug. 12, 2009, the province has planed 215,458 trees.

Chonburi Permanent Secretary Pornchai Kwansakul presided over the latest round of seedling plantings Sept. 30 at Bangpra Wildlife Breeding Center. He noted that wildlife preservation – particularly reforestation – is a priority for HM the Queen.
