Points to be considered for cultivation:
Tree cultivation combines of both science and care. Here with some points in tree plantation.
These are the things to keep in mind before going for tree cultivation.
1. Select trees according to your land type, irrigation facilities and maintenance (after care)
2. Do Soil Test and water analysis and select trees that suits your soil type and water quality.
3. Spacing of trees.
Trees are  prefer to grow in many ways .so our effort would be not only to cover more area for tree plantation but also to plant more trees in a given area.
There are two aspects of tree space: above and below the ground. The above ground space is more obvious for ex.  Tall trees should not be placed where high tension wires are running overhead. Underground space is also as important and medium sized trees should be planted at least at a distance of 4 meters from each other and bigger ones at 8 meters from each other and 5 meters away from buildings foundations.
4. Time of planting
The period of planting depends upon the species, region, availability of irrigation facilities, rainfall of the region, etc. Winter is the best time for planting deciduous trees as they are dormant at this period and hence less likely to suffer from damage. For evergreen and semi-deciduous trees, rainy season is the best time for planting. Trees may be planted during the following periods:
During spring: That is January and February. At this time all the factors (especially the temperature), required for tree growth are present. Thus, this is a good time for young saplings to be planted.
At the onset of Monsoons: For most species and most areas, planting is carried out during monsoons. It is advisable to start planting work immediately after a good shower and when the ground is well moistened to the depth of planting. Thereafter any delay should be treated as loss of growing season.
5. After care.
The saplings need to be watered regularly, protected from cattle and pests and insects, given manure. Pruning will make trees more increase vigor, health and increase the value of timber.
6. Select plant species.
7. Inter cropping or mixed cropping.
8. Have knowledge of different trees.
9. Carbon credit
Carbon finance facilitates the financial reward through carbon credits for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by emitters in developing countries. Activities of the World Bank Carbon Finance Unit (CFU) are part of the larger global effort to combat climate change, and are aligned with the World Bank and its Environment Department's mission to reduce poverty and improve living standards in the developing world.
So we will start our green planet from today ..,

    the first few months while still remaining as a
    one-person business!
