March 2 is the Tree Planting Day in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
On the occasion of the day, the spring tree planting is brisk throughout the country.
In March Juche 104 (2015), the respected supreme leader Kim Jong Un visited a unit of the Air and Anti-Aircraft Force of the Korean People’s Army on the occasion of the Tree Planting Day.
Saying that the People’s Army should take the lead in the forest creation and protection as well, he fixed places and planted the trees of good species he had brought together with combat pilots.
That day he said Kim Jong Il‘s patriotism is the crystallization of genuine patriotism that holds dear every tree and every blade of grass in the country and devotes one’s heart and soul to looking after them.
He earnestly called on the combat pilots and other service personnel of the unit to conduct the forest restoration campaign more dynamically with the consciousness that they are laying a foundation for the wealth of the country and happiness of posterity.
That day Kim Jong Un spent as many as three hours for planting trees.
Those were the precious hours when he implanted patriotism more deeply in the hearts of all people across the country.
