Due to the decades-long scheme, forested areas in Hungary are constantly growing, the paper said.
State foresters have planted 22 million seedlings in February-March and a new planting season will begin next spring, the farm ministry told the paper.
In the current spring season, most of the planting has taken place in the Danube-Tisza region.
In addition to plantings in state-owned forests, millions of seedlings have been planted in private forests.
Most of the new trees are acacia, poplar and oak.
