RFD slashes new planting target by half

- +

The Royal Forest Department (RFD) will cut this year's reforestation target by half due to a delayed budget allocation, department chief Boonchob Sutthamanuswong says. 

According to the original plan, the RFD's reforestation scheme for this year was to cover 54,758 rai in 17 provinces, Mr Boonchob said.

The Budget Bureau, however, has yet to allocate the money to the department, so the reforestation target needs to be slashed to about 27,500 rai, he said.
