The approach involves the following main stages:
Stage I:Estimation of Plantation Requirements (May/June)
State II:Plantation/Landscape Designing(June/July/August)
State II:Implementation (June onwards)

Plantation requirements are to be assessed by collecting information on the available open spaces and areas for undertaking plantation (block plantation), and necessary information (soil type, slope, drainage conditions etc.) should be collected for identifying the suitable
plant species. The Forest Department of the State will support in advising on the suitable species based on the information provided. Also, the Forest Department will support in making the plant species available. The formats for collecting and compiling information
are attached.

Plantation/landscaping designing is to be undertaken scientifically so that the plantation undertaken results in creating the desired positive impacts of visual aesthetics, climate change adaptation, micro-climate control and pollution absorption. For this purpose, experts/consultants are to be engaged at Director of School Education level. For ensuring uniformity, an expert will be engaged to develop technical specification, undertake designing work on pilot basis for schools and offices in providing training/orientation to the Regional level Officers/District level Officers and consultants engaged by them.

Implementation of plantation will be under taken in accordance with an implementation plan developed. The Forest Department of the State will guide in developing implementation plan and undertaking its implementation. The implementation of plantation should be undertaken by the individual schools/offices plantation at school will
be taken up students and staff and officers by the staff. The implementation plan will include plantation drives involving communities, schools, NGOs etc. during June. The drive will be launched in the month of June after reopening of schools.
