Protect already-planted saplings to be free from destructions

Article

Various kinds of media express the good news on growing saplings across the nation through public activities. The news and documentary photos bore all the saplings thriving whereas participant people from the ceremonies were active.
The people understand the important role of trees which can change climatic conditions and social conditions. Bad consequences of barren areas can bring drought to the people. Currently, no one wishes to experience the drought triggered by deforestation.
As such, the authorities at different levels arrange the cultivation of saplings in all parts of the nation this monsoon similar to that of previous years as part of public movements. Hence, relevant departments have been making preparations for holding the tree-growing ceremonies with the nurturing of saplings at respective camps.
The environmental greening activities this year comprise the growing of saplings in monsoon at State-owned forest plantations and forest reserves, cultivation of saplings for improving the natural forests, activities of special greening, and establishment of two-acre rural firewood plantations. To be able to do so, plans were earmarked to nurture 30.57 million saplings to be distributed to the people at the ceremonies.
Myanmar has 49.19 per cent coverage of forest area according to the statistics of the FAO in 2020. As such, State-owned forest reserves are established one after another, in addition to expanding the forest areas under the Myanmar Reforestation and Rehabilitation Programme-MRRP from 2016 to 2026. So far, more than 42,000 acres of watershed forests and mangrove forests have been established.

Growing trees is a good thing. But, it is necessary to seek the best ways for thriving these saplings until these plants grow up with resilience to bad climatic conditions. In so doing, officials need to manage nurturing of these already-planted saplings to be free from destruction in various forms by animals and naughty persons.
If the already-planted saplings are kept under carelessness, they will not be thriving for many days. If so, no one can guarantee their survival. Consequently, the cost, labour and time used in growing the saplings will be wasted unacceptably.
Hence, some bodies emphasize the growth of saplings at the ceremonies one after another whereas some bodies need to protect the already-planted saplings to be free from destruction for ensuing safety thriving with rapid growth. If so, thick foliage of lush and green forests will emerge one after another in all parts of the nation in a few years.
