REDA also explained their plan of establishing local nurseries in all districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. These nurseries will be used to propagate and grow fruit bearing plants.

The idea was appreciated by the Mr. Wajid Ali Khan, who then instructed Forest Dept. to provide support and assistance in this regard which was reassured by Chief Conservator and Conservator of Forest Dept, KP.
