“I will continue to plant until my last breath.”

Since 1979, Jadav Payeng has single handily planted a forest bigger than Central Park. The dedicated arborist managed to turn an eroding wasteland into a tropical paradise for man and beast alike. 115 elephants, rhino, deer, and tigers call the 550-hectare forest home.


Payeng has a dream to restore his home island of Majuli and neighboring Jorhat with the beautiful forests that once covered them.
