2. CONCEPT OF THE PROGRAM
Everybody needs a friend.” “The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” “Love is like a tree, it grows of its own accord, it puts down deep roots into our whole being.” “Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven’t done a thing.
Plantation of trees is important as they improve the life and fulfill essential needs of mankind. During photosynthesis, the trees breakdown food materials and consume carbon dioxide. Resultantly with the help of sunlight, the trees produce carbohydrates. Moreover, trees support life by providing habitat to different species such as squirrels, bees and birds. Trees cleanse the climate by absorbing carbon dioxide from the environment and releasing oxygen. The trees cool the environment through their leaves by absorbing the sun heat. Thus, there occurs cooling in the atmosphere. The trees provide shades to houses and streets. This is truly the most inspirational movement that the country has ever seen. A people’s movement that worked its way up from the grassroots level, influencing the common man and the leader alike.
Keeping with the spirit and the sanctity of the thought, TIMR contributed and affirmed to the green practices being followed by the KJ Educational Institutes. For the last two months, volunteers from the colleges on Trinity Campus have planted hundreds of trees to spread the message of a Green Earth to a country with the largest carbon footprint in the world.
Aim of planting tree is to restore native forests around village to protect water supplies. Planting of trees and their care is holy act. One tree is equated to 10 children. Planting trees reduces carbon dioxide, a principal green house gas that contribute to global warming. Planting tree increases oxygen level in environment, the most essential gas on globe.
