Tree Plantation offers numerous benefits to the mankind and we all are well aware about these. We also know that a little effort made by each one of us can make a huge difference to the overall environment on Earth.
We are dependent upon trees for the production of various goods. Trees provide raw material such as wood, rubber, etc that is turned into furniture, utensils, papers, decorative items and what not. It is also used in building houses. Trees also bear fruits that are raw or are processed and used in manufacturing jams, jellies, juices, sauces and what not. Many of the items produced with the raw material extracted by trees are exported to other countries to boast businesses and the overall economy of the country. So, the greater number of trees we plant the greater number of such goods we can produce.
Trees serve as a habitat for birds as well as a number of animals. Some of these animals include tree kangaroo, tree frog, spider monkey, flying lemur, green tree python and koala. They live on and around the trees and also get food from them. Some of these relish the fruits they bear while others love having the green leaves they are full of.
Besides, forests are a natural habitat for the wild animals. This is where they dwell. Deforestation has led to the extinction of various species of birds and animals. Many others are on the verge of extinction. It is natural for the animals and birds to die if we snatch their sources of food and ruin their places of habitat.
Tree plantation can help them survive and live peacefully. It is thus important for maintaining biodiversity in the environment. Biodiversity is extremely essential for maintaining the ecological balance in the environment.
While we must stop deforestation and save trees however with the growing demand of wood, rubber and various products made from trees it can only be restricted to some extent. We cannot avoid it completely. Besides the high demand of goods, the need for urbanisation has also increased. Forests are being cut to construct residential areas in the cities to accommodate more and more people here.
The land is also being used to set up industries. In this age of growing technology, this is the need of the hour. While we cannot avoid all this however we can replenish the loss by way of tree plantation. It is not the sole responsibility of the government to plant trees to make the city green. We must also work for this cause.
We all know how important trees and plants are for our survival and well being. But how many of us are actually involved in planting tree regularly? If you are not doing it, it is time you must take this up seriously and put in whatever little efforts you can to improve the environment.
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.
