Reacting to the video, one user commented, “Amazing effort and dedication by Antoine Moses. To ensure #soilhealth, carbon sink and a healthy atmosphere, we definitely need more trees! #SaveSoil”

“This is real climate responsive activism. No fancy speech at world summits, no placards, no op-ed, just climate action. Role modeling is a better (and actually effective) way to inspire people for #ClimateAction,” added another user.
“Wonderful to hear and see this kind of record-breaking work. How many of these trees will actually grow big, healthy and survive too should be tracked, after the planting,” commented a third.
