Tree plantation for better environment

(Tuba Shahid, )

Planting trees is a Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and its reward continues even after the death of the person who plants a tree.
Today the world is facing environmental problems. Global warming, ozone depletion and pollution are burning issues. Solution to these problems lies in planting more trees.

Trees and plants are the prime source of environmental purification and beautification. Trees inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen, reduce temperature and create a healthy effect, both physically and psychologically, on human beings.

In fact, forests are the only natural industry which produces oxygen. According to international standards, area under forests should form at least 25 per cent of the total land inhabited by a human population.

But the area covered by forests in our country has been reduced to about 4.8 per cent of the total land. These statistics do not include the frontier areas. In such circumstances we should plant more and more trees.

In pursuance of this resolve, students of a public sector medical college of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa organised a tree plantation campaign.

These students devoted their Sunday to planting saplings and beautification of the college. The environment of the college lawns was drastically changed in just one day because of tree plantation by these students.

It is true that the youth of Pakistan possesses a great potential and spirit to change society. They can change every negative into a positive aspect.

They can change any calamity into an opportunity. All they need is proper guidance and encouragement.

Considering the zeal of the college students we can say that the future of Pakistan is bright, secure and prosperous because future belongs to the youth.
