Telangana Ku Haritha Haaram, a flagship programme of the Telangana Government envisages to increase the present 24% tree cover in the State to 33% of the total geographical area of the State. The thrust areas to achieve the above are two-fold; one, initiatives in notified forest areas, and the other, initiatives in areas outside the notified forest areas.

230 Crore seedlings are proposed to be planted in the State during the three years. Out of this, 130 Crores seedlings are proposed to be planted outside the notified forest areas (10 Crore within HMDA limits, and the remaining 120 Crores in rest of the State). It is also proposed to plant, and rejuvenate the viable rootstock to achieve 100 crore plants inside the forest areas by way of intensive protection of the forests.
