UAF holds awareness walk to mark national tree plantation day

FAISALABAD: The University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) held an awareness walk to
 
mark national tree plantation day aimed at creating the awareness among the people about the
 
blessings of trees. 
 
The rally organised by the Department of Forestry UAF was led by Vice Chancellor Professor
 
Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan. The rally commenced from Admin Block was concluded at Faculty of
 
Agriculture.
 
The participants were carrying placards inscribed with slogans 'Plant the trees to save the World'
 
'planting one tree provides oxygen to 4 people daily" and 'curb deforestation'. Dean Agriculture
 
Dr Riaz Ahmad Forestry Chairman Dr Tahir Siddiqi along with other notables also participated.
 
Talking to participants, the Vice Chancellor showed his concern that the forest net in the country
 
was only 2.5 percent compared to the international standards of 25 percent. The situation
 
provokes different challenges including climate changes, pollution, drought, heavy floods, and
 
new diseases outbreak. He stressed upon the need to take the tangible steps to curb the crisis with
 
enhanced awareness and collective efforts on the part of the all stakeholders. He said it is really
 
disturbing that instead of increment in our forest net, it is decreasing with each passing day.
 
He showed his concern that due to ever-increasing population; fertile agriculture land is being
 
covered into residential colonies which should be properly controlled with a manageable way.
 
He said that UAF had mapped out a plan to produce skilled manpower and provide training to
 
forestry practitioners. He added that trees are essential part of healthy environment for a better
 
life. The vice chancellor UAF and other members of walk also planted the trees in front of
