On 15 November 2013, seed collection for the Persimmon and Japanese hackberry survivor trees took place at Atago Pond, with the attendance of some of UNITAR Afghan Fellowship participants.

We have learned through UNITAR's Sabbahuddin Sokout-san that thanks to GLH partners in Afghanistan led by Dr. Naseri of the Agha Khan Foundation, trees are doing well: herewith the sturdy and visibly thriving Hiroshima Gingko biloba saplings in Kabul!
