Film and video actor Nay Htoo Naing has been promoting tree planting in Chauk, Magway region, and many interested people have contributed, according to his posts on social media.
After his initial proposal to grow 5,000 plants in the Aung Mingala field in Chauk, which has been listed among the world’s 15 hottest cities, public interest has soared, and his Facebook account has been flooded with donors.
“Nay Htoo Naing is a promoter of plantations. He is not the one who will grow and nurture these plants to become trees. Nay Htoo Aung will try to get the necessary support from the people and organizations that will take care of the trees. Whoever or whatever organization grows, our focus is to grow trees,” he informed the public on his social media page.
The contribution starts at around K50,000, for which Nay Htoo Naing regularly updates the list of donors, and many fans follow it with appreciative comments.
In addition to Aung Mingala mound, he plans to grow trees in the surrounding area of the Chintaungma pagoda. Thus, he has contacted the groups that will maintain the plantation.
At the Aung Mingala field in Chauk, Magway region, land preparation has been commenced to grow 5,000 trees of nine species, including gum-kino star-flower, tamarind, gold mohur, Gangaw (Mesua ferrea), laburnums and rain trees.
In previous years, the actor had also planted trees in some areas, including Chauk, to protect them from heat. With the hotter weather, attempts by various personalities and organizations to plant trees in many regions of Myanmar have been expected this year. — MT/ZN
