Tree Planting

Tree planting is the process of transplanting tree seedlings, generally for forestry, land reclamation, or landscaping purposes. Trees are vital. As the biggest plants on the planet, they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world’s wildlife. They also provide us with the materials for tools and shelter. Forests play a major role in erosion control, protection and conservation of water supplies and preventing floods. Because of these contributions that trees make to our environment, they are essential to our welfare. By planting trees, we make up for the loss we have caused the planet and ourselves through the destruction of forest areas over the centuries. We engauge the local communities especially youths and school children through tree planting, protection as well as nature conservation as a way of building their capacities on biodiversity conservation activities.
