Uttar Pradesh is setting a great example that all other states should take note of. Thanks to the great initiative by the state CM Yogi Adityanath who started off the state’s Van Mahotsav on Monday. It is spearheading its mission to plant as many as 9 crore saplings in the state by August 15.
The CM appreciated the residents for their active participation in this good initiative. Yogi also urged the people to join the initiative for environmental protection. “We should plant trees which are religiously and medicinally significant and not ones like eucalyptus and popular. I want the forest department officers to also involve heads of all dharma sthals (religious places) like Dewa Sharif in the plantation drive,” Yogi was quoted as saying by TOI.

When we see ‘green colour’, it reminds us of trees, plants, grass etc. Trees are the best living creatures on the planet because it gives the necessary oxygen to the humans, animals and other living species. To emphasize the importance of trees, in particular, they are selfless creatures that don’t ask anything in return barring the plethora supply of water.
When it comes to trees and nature, Kerala never ceases to amaze us for its evergreen beauty and its looks. It is arguably the best place for nature lovers in India. Some call it ‘Land of Nature’ or ‘Land of Coconuts’. There is a saying that ‘if we find comfort in the shade today it’s because of that anonymous person who planted a tree a long time ago’.
With a steady decline of trees due to the infamous deforestation activities, the planet is losing its core part of trees. Without trees, life on earth is unimaginable and planting trees should be our main motive.
