About the project :

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

While each one of us is busy in satisfying our needs, there are a very few who focus on gratifying the mighty Mother Earth. Vishnu Lamba is one among them. The TREE-MAN belongs to Tonk district of Rajasthan. There has not been a single day in Vishnu’s life when he has not planted a tree since last fifteen years.

कहा जाता है कि जुनून जब हद को पार कर जाए तो वह पागलपन में बदल जाता है। राजस्थान के जयपुर में भी एक ऐसा ही दीवाना रहता है, जिसे पर्यावरण से कुछ इस तरह का प्यार है कि वह उसकी खातिर अपने आप की परवाह नहीं करता है।

Determined to conserve the environment, Vishnu has planted more than 5.5 lakhs trees and has saved more than 13 lakhs trees from cutting down by relocating the commercial and industrial projects.

वृक्ष पुरुष के नाम से मशहूर लांबा का कहना है कि अगर कोई अपनी जिंदगी में पांच पेड़ नहीं लगाता है तो उसे चिता पर जलने का हक नहीं है। इसलिए वो लगातार लोगों को पेड़ लगाने का संदेश दे रहे हैं।

Vishnu Lamba, more popularly known as the TreeMan of Rajasthan, organised a Mahakumbh  named as 'Pehle basaya bihad - Ab bachayainge bihad' (Once we lived in forests - Now we will save forests) where the former dacoits of Chambal took part to appeal people and government to take concrete steps to save environment and forests. They are going to fight for the forests which were their hideout. Though they had laid down their arms years back, they have an undying affection for the nature.

Man-made environmental factors like deforestation, urban sprawl, global warming, greenhouse effect and many other are harming the nature like never before. Being a nature lover, this was a huge concern for Vishnu which led him to form Shree Kalpataru Sansthan in Jaipur in the year 2011. This organization works for the conservation of the environment in its true sense.

The Sansthan is functional in 22 states in India and across 6 countries. It works for the benefit of environment focusing on minimizing the effect of climate change that happens due to deforestation.

They have taken up the initiative to plant more than 1.25 Crore Trees in next few years and to develop 100 Adarsh Grams (town/cities) by planting 1.25 Lakh trees in each all across India. These Grams/towns would be an inspiration to make India Greener.

लांबा ने बॉलीवुड अमिताभ बच्चन, सुभाष घई, गोविंदा समेत करीब 250 फिल्मी हस्तियों को अपनी मुहिम से जुड़ा है। साथ ही राजनीति जगत के कई दिग्गजों ने भी लांबा के साथ जुड़कर पर्यावरण सरंक्षण में अपना सहयोग दिया है, जिसमें केंद्रीय मंत्रियों और मुख्यमंत्री समेत कई नेता शामिल हैं।

Risks and Challenges :

Deforestation is a major concern to be worried about. Trees are the lungs of our environment, without them, it would be impossible to breathe. If we fail to save our environment, we fail to save our future.

Other Ways You Can Help :

Plant a tree, so that next generation could get air for free.
