Trees help in building soil, moreover, they help soak up stormwater before it can lead to a flood. They also offer energy-saving shade that reduces global warming and creates habitat for thousands of different species. And most importantly, can help remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which cools the earth.

    Well I personally try to Plant a tree at least in a year and so far I am quite success….
    Well today only we planted around 45 No. trees and hopefully we will not allow to die a single tree…
    Last year planted around 12 trees, 11 survived….

    Hopefully next year the target number will reach more than 150…

    “Pedh Lagao or khud ko Bachao, Jeevan Khushhaal Banao”
    Well by putting trees I am trying to help our next generation….

  2. Great initiative and affordable for all, we should make it viral!


    *By the next 10 years, Earth will become 4 degrees hotter than its now. Himalayan glaciers are melting at a rapid rate, so all of us lend our hand to fight global warming. Plant more trees, don’t waste water. Don’t use or burn plastics. Because one can’t fight against the global warming.*

    Who looks after the plants after planting them. Watering is required regularly as well as protecting them from predators.

    1. Thats the major concern. We should not feel happy just by planting trees. Taking care after planting is even more important otherwise its a waste of money and time too.


    Need to save mother planet n need to plant millions of trees to soak tons & tons of harmful emissions.Share this message to all your friends,relatives & wellwishers to show that your care not only for them but for their generations to come.
