A Greener Lahore: PHA @ Work

With mission statement “Make Lahore Clean, Bright & Green”, Parks and Horticulture Authority just in seven days planted 19760 trees in different areas of Lahore according to the Jung on 18th August.

logo_pha.gif “PHA was created by merging the horticultural wings of LDA and MCL on Sep 21st 1998. The rationale for the creation of the PHA was to lend focus and autonomy to the Horticulture in Lahore, in the wake of Road Rehabilitation Projects. The main objective behind the creation of PHA was to make Lahore clean and beautiful. PHA is implementing on large number of ways to accomplish its goals. Mr. Kamran Lashari was posted as first D.G. of PHA.”

See more details on their website.

The government would plant more than 150,000 saplings in the city by September 10 and to ensure the participation of citizens, PHA offered free sapling on a phone call and as far as I know 19th August was last date to avail the opportunity. I saw their banners all around Lahore and lets hope they got the best response by 19th from Lahorees.

    Realistically, so far they did quite a job and hopefully, they will maintain the 19760.
