Tree plantation is basically the procedure of moving tree seedlings from their original place and planting them elsewhere for different purposes.
The reason behind tree plantation is mostly forestry, landscaping and land reclamation. Each of these purposes of tree plantation is important for its own unique reason.
One of the most common purposes of tree plantation is forestry. Forests are extremely important for maintaining ecological balance on earth. A major part of our planet is covered with forests. However, these are being cut at a rapid pace ever since the beginning of the industrial era.
Although forests grow naturally however in order to replenish the loss occurring due to deforestation it is essential for us to contribute our bit towards growing forests. Tree plantation is done for this purpose. With the help of tree plantation, forests can be grown faster.
Tree plantation is also done for landscaping purpose. The urban areas these days are mostly devoid of trees and plants. Landscaping of such areas is done to make these places worth living as well as to render a feel good factor to them.
Tree plantation is the best and easiest way to beautify the surroundings. These are often planted on the roadside, in societies, in the parks as well as other places in the town for the purpose of landscaping. This does not only make the place look beautiful but also helps in beating the heat and offers various other benefits.
Tree plantation is one of the easiest and quickest ways to spread greenery. People around the globe have volunteered to contribute towards the environment from time to time. Many of them have set up non-profit organizations with joint efforts and are working towards making earth a better place to live.
These organizations do not only indulge in tree plantation activities and other activities to spread greenery but also engage in motivating others to work for this cause.
They organize skits explaining the importance of tree plantation and propagate the same among their neighbors, friends and colleagues. With the advent of social media and internet it has become easier to spread knowledge about the importance of tree plantation and encourage people to participate in the same.
While the NGOs are doing their bit towards making the environment cleaner and green, they often fall short. The propagation of their cause must be done on wide scale in order to involve more and more people to work towards this drive. Since these are all non-profit organizations, they do not have enough funds to do so.
The government must support them whole heartedly to further their cause. After all, these organizations are working towards building a better nation. With the financial help provided by the government, these organizations can take up bigger projects and encourage other people by way of advertisements in television, newspapers as well as big roadside hoardings.
People must be sensitized about it so that they participate in large numbers. A big change in this direction is only possible if each one of us takes it as a responsibility to plant trees.
Even if we do not have time to join an NGO and go with them on the drives regularly, we can make our contribution towards the cause by simply planting trees in our surrounding areas.
It is time people must recognize the importance of tree plantation and contribute towards the same. The government must take this issue seriously and work towards involving more and more people to further the cause.
As a Pakistani, it is our responsibility to make our country cleaner and greener; for this we must take an oath and plant at least one tree so that tomorrow our kids and newer generation will get benefited from these trees, their shadows, and a better environment.
Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa one of the prominent names from the social welfare workers has taken this very seriously and strongly thinks that clean and green Pakistan is the guarantee of a prosperous and progressive future.
Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa also added that people should come forward and stay united to support Pakistan Government’s this much needed and significant step by planting trees and taking care of them in their respective ways. By planting at least one tree, you can play a very essential role for your country’s better environment.
So, what are you waiting for, it’s time to act and become the part of Government of Pakistan’s Tree Plantation drive just like Muhammad Ramzan Chhipa did.
