Save Trees & Grow Trees:

In the past, the major need of people in this world was arable land. Man did not have to think about animate things. However, now the adverse effects on forests through over-population and the development of various chemical elements in the atmosphere have led to irregular rainfall and global warming. This global warming has brought changes in climate, including making perennial snow mountains melt, thereby adversely affecting not only human beings but also other living species.

Because of the growth in the population, a large number of trees are cut for fuel, and to reclaim land for agricultural cultivation. This is not simply the destruction of trees but it also means harming what belongs to us. The continuing decline in forests in many parts of the world, is adversely affecting the already changing global climate, thus upsetting the lives, not only of mankind, but also of all living beings.

Similarly, the harmful effect on the atmosphere brought about by chemical emissions in industrial areas is a very dangerous sign.

It is our responsibility, who speak of people’s welfare of all, to contribute towards this cause.

AROH undertakes several programmes towards this end and to keep the environment green and clean. Some of the activities are:

  • Organising awareness workshops for school and college students.
  • Organising plantation camps
  • Taking up areas for plantations

What AROH’s Volunteers can do for trees

Planting Fruit Trees
Consider planting a fruit tree in your yard. There are miniature trees for even the tiniest yard and large ones if you have acres.

Hanging a Tire Swing
A tire swing is a simple, inexpensive, old-fashioned addition to the kids play area that even adults can enjoy. Let’s put one together. You will of course need a tree or appropriate support to hang your tire swing from.
