Nepal Postal Slogans

Part 1a

Tree Preservation
The erosion of the forrest in Nepal has become a major problem for them, as they had no re-planting programs. With no fuel source other then wood, and with trees being cut down, much of the fertile soil was washed away with rain. So for the last 25 years a re-planting program has been going with the help of outside aid. This is also reflected in the number of postal slogans on this subject.
