You may not plant millions of trees but if you can take care one single tree with love and care, that will make you great. - Amit Ray

"A tree is the best friend of man on earth." When we use trees respectfully and economically, we have one of the greatest resources on earth. Trees are rightfully called the 'lungs of the earth.' Life on earth would cease to exist in the absence of trees. Trees are responsible for sustaining the environment in several ways.

Trees help cool the environment, thereby conserving energy by reducing the need for air conditioning. Streets and cities with a larger green cover are significantly cooler as compared to those without. Ultraviolet rays are known to be the leading cause of skin cancer. Trees shield against UV rays by 50%.

Trees play an important part in conserving water. The shade from trees slows down the rate of water evaporation from lawns, gardens, etc. Trees also help in preventing water pollution. They reduce runoff by breaking rainfall, thus allowing water to flow into the earth. They act like sponges that filter rainwater and recharge the groundwater table. Moreover, trees play an important part in the water cycle and control the moisture level of the ecosystem. Tree plantation has a major role to play in preventing soil erosion. The roots of trees bind the soil, thus preventing it from getting washed away during rains.

Trees are a source of food and wood, both of which help promote the economy of the region. The forest industry provides ample job opportunities. Additionally, sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and wood for cooking and heating. Trees are also a habitat and sanctuary for many species of birds, animals, and insects. When young, they provide shelter to birds, insects, lichen, and fungi. The trunks of ancient trees can host owls, bats, and beetles, to name a few tree-dwelling species. Thus, trees are unique hosts of complex microhabitats.

Before embarking on a plantation drive it is important to keep a few things in mind. The type of trees to be planted depends on the topography and climate of the area. It is preferable to plant indigenous species as they are better suited to the local habitat. Also, this helps preserve traditional flora.

This is the ideal time when people must realize the significance of plantation and contribute to it. The government must take this issue seriously and more and more individuals must work to pursue this essential objective. 

Please sign the petition and take a pledge to plant a tree on your birthday every year.

“Plant a tree today for a better tomorrow.”
