Trees Planted: 210
Tree plantation is an activity that we can all participate in for improving our environment. Trees play a significant role in maintaining ecological balance and equilibrium, and by protecting trees and growing more of them, we can ensure the health of the ecosystems.
Planting trees and gardens at schools help beautify the community. The newly planted trees will clean the air. They will clean the water runoff from the buildings with their roots. They not only enrich the students' and residents' lives, but they also enhance the Earth that they now inhabit.
Tree plantation in schools would help in raising awareness about the importance of trees and shrubs. The best way to inspire love for nature is to start imbibing it at a young age. By having students learn every aspect of tree planting and care, from picking a species to putting it in the ground and everything in between, it becomes second nature to them.
With this thought in mind, Team UBA, IITR decided to conduct a tree plantation drive in the schools of adopted village Beladi-Salhapur.
In the event, both students and teachers enthusiastically took part. A total of 25 plants of 4 different varieties were planted. 15 plants were planted in the Primary School of the village, and 10 plants were planted in the Secondary School of the village.
