It is expected that a man-made forest will appear near Yenangyoung in Magway Region, central Myanmar or Anyar which has suffered extreme heat, in the next couple of years.
The plan has been carried out by a local philanthropic group, Yenatha Dingar Brothers which does philanthropic works such as planting, digging wells and building public rest-house.
“It will be initiated at Parahita park near Yenangyoung bypass. Various kinds of trees will be planted there. We have aimed to create a small forest where travellers can take shelter and birds and animals can come to inhabit. No Parahita park existed before. We will implement it for the first time,” said the group founder Ko Yenatha Dingar.
The small forest will include a lake and about 10,000 trees more will be planted and existing trees must not be cut, he said.
“It will shape up in next two years. The number of people who cut trees is still larger than the number of people who grow trees. So it will be better similar plans can expand,” he said.
In order to protect the man-made forest including shade trees such as rain trees, neem trees and Homalium longifolium from forest fire, arson attack and animals, gardeners including their families will be hired by providing financial support. — Thit Taw/ZS/ED
