We need more trees

Daily Messenger - - National -

Dear Editor

In to­day’s world we are fac­ing many en­vi­ron­men­tal prob­lems like global warm­ing, soil ero­sion, in­creased green­house ef­fect, wild life ex­tinc­tion, ozone de­ple­tion, pol­lu­tion and etc. So­lu­tion to th­ese prob­lems lies in plant­ing more trees.

The en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits of plant­ing trees are known to all. Trees are the pri­mary source of en­vi­ron­men­tal pu­rifi­ca­tion and beau­ti­fi­ca­tion. They pro­vide oxy­gen and in­hale car­bon diox­ide. Trees main­tain hu­mid­ity in the air and main­tain the eco­log­i­cal bal­ance in the en­vi­ro­ment. They ab­sorb all the harm­ful gases and gives us fresh and pure air to breathe in.

Trees are also the source of eco­nomic sup­port, em­ploy­ment, oxy­gen gen­er­a­tion, live­stock graz­ing and etc. The gov­ern­ment needs to make mass tree plan­ta­tion for re­duc­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal prob­lems. Only the gov­ern­ment is not re­spon­si­ble for plant­ing more trees, but it is also our re­spon­si­bil­ity to grow more and more trees.
