Tree Plantation in Bangladesh


Since the dawn of civilization man has a close relation with nature Man has made friendship with nature. Nature helps us in many ways, similarly trees are closely related with our life they are our friends, and Trees play an important role in our life and economy. Scope of plantation: Bangladesh is a lower riparian country Upper levels are the best suitable places to plant trees. Sea beaches and low-lying unused lands can be used for tree plantation. There are many roads and highways in our country. We can plant trees on the both sides of these roads and highways. Again in the villages there are many proper places which can be used for tree plantation. The sides and areas that are lying unused can be used, too. Proper time of tree plantation June and July are the best time for tree plantation. Tree plantation programme should be expanded to the remote corner of the country. The officers connected with this programme should take proper steps and needful measures to make it a success. They should try to make it popular all over the country. They should come forward with their best knowledge. Most of the people of our villages are illiterate. They have no knowledge about the importance of trees. Attempt should be made to make them aware of the importance of trees. Trees provide us with food and vitamins: Trees are our best friends. They are a great source of food and vitamins. There are various kinds of fruit trees. They give us various kinds of fruits which are rich in food value and vitamins. They meet up our local demands. They also meet up our vitamin deficiency. As a result people can keep their body fit and sound by taking fruits. Again we export fruits to many other countries and earn a lot of foreign exchange. Trees provide us with furniture Trees are our constant companies in our day to day life. We use them for various purposes. We can not think of our homes, houses, residences etc. without trees. We use trees to make furniture, windows, and doors for domestic use. Again valuable furniture is made iron these trees. We sell some pieces of valuable furniture to foreign countries. Thus trees add beauty to our dwelling places. Its impact on climate: Trees bear a great impact on the climate. If we destroy trees at random, one day the country will turn into a great desert. The country will bear the consequences of green house effect. Again there will be no rain and as a result the country will face a great crisis because ours is an agricultural country and our economy is dependant on agriculture. Again our agriculture is dependant on rain. So trees play a vital role on our climate. Trees keep the soil strong. Trees save us from flood and many other natural calamities. It is needless to speak of the importance of trees. It is not possible to describe the importance and uses of trees in words. They are part and parcel in our day to day life, we can not think of our existence without them. Rabindranath says- Back thy forest, take your town. 'Our government has also launched a massive and ambitious programme regarding tree plantation, we should not use and destroy trees at random. Rather we should plant trees more and more for a better happier and healthier life.
