Plantation of trees and plants aids in making the environment better. It purifies the air, conserves water, helps in climate control, preserves soil and benefits the overall environment in several other ways.

NGOs Involved in Tree Plantation

On the one hand there are industrialists and ministers who are blinded by money. All they want is to expand their business and earn money. They don’t mind cutting trees, deforesting the Earth and raising the pollution levels.
On the other hand there are those who care about the environment and are working towards improving its condition selflessly.They are involved in planting trees, cleaning the water bodies and other activities to make the environment clean and green. Many non-profit organizations have been formed across the globe by the joint efforts of such people. Some of these include Green Yatra, Grow Trees, Sankalp Taru, Green Life, Say Trees, Save Green, Kudumban, Being Green and Go Sakthi.
The Department of Environment extends its support to these NGOs from time to time. Besides being involved in the process of tree plantation and other such activities many of these NGOs also promote the cause by performing street side plays, updating their social pages and visiting schools and colleges to spread the word.

Importance of Tree Plantation to be Sensitized at School Level

Students are given brief knowledge about the importance of tree plantation and keeping the environment clean in their environmental science class. They learn the lesson for their exam and forget about it later. This is not how it should be. Special classes must be conducted to sensitize them about the importance of growing trees and plants.
Teachers must stress upon the importance of tree plantation in these sessions and make the students understand how they can help in changing the environment for good. It is a good idea for the schools and colleges to collaborate with some NGOs and take the students out for cleanliness drives as well as for tree plantation every month. Practical experience always has a far greater impact compared to theoretical knowledge. This will generate their interest in this field and encourage them to make an effort in this direction.
Besides, if each student from each school and college in the country takes part in tree plantation campaign every month, we will be growing so many trees.


We must plant more and more trees and also encourage those around us to do so. It is best to join a nearby NGO working for this cause to work efficiently in this direction.
