Agreed with your observation more  
A good percentile of trees per head in developed countries is an exercise over decades carried in a planned manner. In India, the way we propose planting trees by non-officials it will be extremely haphazard. I see on the Delhi roadsides people have planted trees of Peepal & Bargad most haphazardly without knowing and appreciating that such trees grow into huge sizes and foliage reducing the room sizes of the roads. Besides, such trees also more a source of constructing temples under these trees and employment in the name of tree worship. It is going to be a rather abuse of tree plantation. Peepal, Bargad and Neem must be planted in a planned manner and see that these underneath is not occupied by religious bigots. more  
Even if there is roadside plantation along Roads i.e National highways , State highways, Roads within local limits etc should be implemented with zest and zeal and the local plants like neem, Bargad, peepal, perennial fruit bearing large plants etc suitable for the particular area according to soil, topography etc should be planted instead of ornamental and foreign origin plants so as to have large foliage to answer climatic concerns and to improve the environment more  
Idea of planting one tree is good but where as you have no land of your own. See 14 lane highways which has no tree but only concrete so when it rains no place for water to be absorbed. and when sunny no shed. The only thing one can do is control population. more  
A point for valid consideration, not concretisation. more
