This Man Planted Trees In The Same Spot Everyday, 37 Years Later He Is Amazed At What Grew

Jadav Payeng has been single handedly planting a forest since 1979. The talented arborist managed to turn an eroding wasteland in his home island of Majuli into a tropical paradise that is now bigger than Central Park.

Not only is this forest beautiful for man to wander through but it is now home to 115 elephants along with many rhino, deer, and tigers! Payeng is a great example of how we can restore even the dryest wasteland back into God’s beautiful creation.

He even said this:

“I tell them, cutting my trees will get you nothing. Cut me before you cut my trees!”

Watch him talk about the beautiful forest he created in the video below:


My Friend,

1. God desires a relationship with you.

2. God wants you to know him better.

3. I pray that God helps you to grow closer to him every day.

I hope Jesus Daily is helping you to know God better.
