RIYADH: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Imam Abdulaziz bin Mohammed Royal Reserve Development Authority planted over 1.2 million trees and shrubs during the first half of 2024, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

It forms part of the authority’s plan to resettle indigenous wild plants in the Imam Abdulaziz bin Mohammed and King Khalid royal reserves.

The plants include the Sidr, Talh, Arfaj and Arta species, which were selected to suit the environment of the two reserves, according to SPA.

The authority has enhanced vegetation cover and resettled indigenous wild plants in the reserves since 2021.

The projects are in line with the objectives of the Saudi Green Initiative and Vision 2030 plan, the SPA reported.
