Save trees

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - FA­REED ZA­FAR

Forests are a bless­ing of God to the mankind. If we talk about forestry in Pak­istan, the ra­tio is now less than 4%. The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of forestry is worst. Every year the heat stroke af­fects ma­jor cities of Pak­istan, es­pe­cially the Southren re­gions. This year we have seen that the tree cut­ting mafia has cut many trees il­le­gally. I have seen that Bill­boards, ban­ners or posters at the side of main roads are in­creas­ing in­cred­i­bly but Forestry is de­creas­ing day-by-day.

Green­ery is the best so­lu­tion to fight the heat stroke prob­lems and other dis­eases but we are just cut­ting down the trees ev­ery­day just for the sake of money. Our Gov­ern­ment should take se­ri­ous ac­tion on this mat­ter. If trees are grown and planted in all the ma­jor cities then en­vi­ron­ment con­di­tions will be bet­ter in fu­ture. —Karachi
