A single tree gives shade to living beings but a cluster of trees provides foods, clothing and shelter while a forest creates good environs and changes climatic conditions. In fact, trees and living and non-living beings are inseparable in the ecological world.
Myanmar is formed with 44 natural conservation areas based on the 2019 list with ASEAN heritage parks-AHP and Ramsar sites. In addition, the UNESCO recognized the Inlay Lake and Indawgyi Wildlife Sanctuaries as the man and biosphere reserve-MAB.
Myanmar established the natural conservation sites, aimed at implementing the policies of the State for environmental and biodiversity conservation and protecting ecosystems, natural plants, wildlife, Myanmar’s domestic species of plants, and animals. Moreover, efforts are being made to improve the research works concerning environmental science. These natural conservation sites and forest reserves are based on thriving trees.
According to the Conservation of Biodiversity and Protected Areas Law, the categories of protected areas are scientific reserve, national park, marine national park, nature reserve, wildlife sanctuary, geo-features significant area, and community conserved protected area.
Hence, individual citizens and community of people should place emphasis on growing and nurturing of trees as a national duty with the farsightedness for creation of better society as well as better country of the new generations in the future.
The government is striving for expanding the area of forest coverage across the nation with activities of tree-growing ceremonies on a yearly basis. It is necessary to establish forests on the barren hills for prevention of climate change impacts. Expansion of forest reserves and protected public forests let the people know the value of forests which can fulfill the needs of food, clothing and shelter to the people.
Consequently, forest reserves and natural areas are attractive to local and foreign travellers. It can contribute to booming the tourism industry so as to generate incomes for the State and the local people. Hence, anyone should not disturb the environmental conservation activities. Every citizen should nurture saplings for thriving without any disturbances and dangers.
Each tree can create shade. A cluster of trees can give food, clothing and shelters to living beings. A forest can change not only the climate but life of people and standard of the country. Hence, individual citizens and community of people should place emphasis on growing and nurturing of trees as a national duty with the farsightedness for creation of better society as well as better country of the new generations in the future.
