Project Name : Tree Planting Project in Primary Schools
Project Description :
Trees are our earliest neighbours and best friends. In true sense trees are our real neighbour, Trees are of tremendous value to us. They give us oxygen & without this oxygen we cannot imagine the existence of Lively Earth or life. Trees are an important part of the Biosphere that exists on earth. They provide shade to men and animals. Trees are home to numerous birds, insects and animals.
They prevent drought and cause rainfall. They help in checking environmental pollution like, air pollution, soil pollution etc. & trees also are a natural medium to prevent soil erosion. They give us oxygen to breathe in and absorb the carbon dioxide. So, we should promote forestation.
Wood is the most valuable product that trees give us. We use wood in many ways. Wood is used as fuel and firewood. Wood is used to make furniture. Trees are good sources of medicinal herbs, lace and raw materials for many industries. We get resins, natural gums, etc. from the trees. Trees help in maintaining the fertility of soil. They maintain ecological balance. They help in cleaning environment.
Not only trees provide essential things, they also add to the natural beauty.
Unfortunately, trees are being cut indiscriminately. Rapid industrialization, urbanization and population growth have contributed to the loss of trees. In this way we have done great loss to ourselves.
