Reforestation for Timber
Pakistan has a very small fraction of land dedicated to forests and that is a major reason for desertification and climate control problems. Specially plants should be explored that grow fast and not only yield fruit but good timber like walnut, pine nut, pecan or almond. that has multiple uses.
Maple tree is s good tree for planting in the northern areas of Pakistan. It is fast growing and it also serves as a source for a sweet maple syrup which could be a sugar substitute. The project is to do an economic feasibility of maple and other related trees and consider it an investment with regular long term return on investment..
Creating new forests that will change the ecology as well as provide agro products will create large job opportunities will little investment..
A project with multiple yields and low on natural resources will provide high earnings in the near short term..
