Bari Chakwal plans to develop Pothwar into an olive valley. Plantation of 20 lac certified disease free olive nursery plants (2016-20) in Pothwar under olive valley project of Punjab Agriculture Department shall also contribute to global efforts of mitigating global warming since tree plantations facilitate bio-sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Trees and plants absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. By removing this greenhouse gas from the air, plantations function as terrestrial carbon sinks, meaning they store large amounts of carbon.
