Afforestation - Tree Plantation
Tree plantation means to plant trees on a large scale. Trees are the best friends of human beings as well as of other animals. The irrational and massive cutting down of trees for wood, furniture and fuel causes deforestation, desertification, global warming, rise of sea level and submersion etc. To stop all these irrevocable catastrophes, we need to plant more new trees. Trees recycle carbon dioxide and water to keep pace with environmental elements in the atmosphere. It lets us live and embellish our lives by providing us with oxygen, food, medicine, wood etc. Bangladesh government observes national tree plantation week every year to encourage people to plant more trees. However, the government alone cannot make it a success unless we all come forward in a body. We can plant trees by roads, on mountain slopes, beside our home and in any place in disuse. In order to make it successful, we need to raise mass awareness among the people of every stratum of the society about the importance of tress. Awareness raising campaign and distribution of plants and saplings free can make it a success. We all should come forward to plant more trees to live healthily and to save the mother earth, our only abode.
