A well known example is that of Julia Butterfly Hill protecting an ancient redwood tree called Luna in a dramatic attempt to prevent the clear cutting of the redwood forest.
It has also resulted in laws to protect specific trees in
specific locations all around the world. Some trees are

In other parts of the world there are green-spirited people planting trees. Jadav Payeng even planted a 1360 acre jungle (5.5 km2) on the shores of the river Brahmaputra all by himself: In 2015, he was honoured with Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award in India for his accomplishment.
