Plant more trees

National Tree Planting Day was celebrated yesterday, October 7, and it was interesting to see how many new trees were planted. This exercise must be encouraged and hundreds of trees must be planted every year instead of just a few. There must also be proper maintenance and care for these trees until they can fend for themselves.

It is sad to see the state of our older trees. They are so neglected. One would have thought that with all of the information available on how to care and groom them the city’s trees would have been in better condition…..
