Van Mahotsav is an annual festival celebrated in India in the month of July. It is a movement of planting trees in order to conserve forests. It was started in 1950 by Shri Kanhaiyalal M. Munshi,the then Union Minister for Agriculture and Food. It aims to spread awareness in the mind of the people for the conservation of forests and planting of new trees.

The festival was celebrated with the motive of saving Mother Earth. Van Mahotsava means 'the festival of trees'. It is a one week festival. During this festival thousands of trees are planted all over the country.
