Soil Conservation And Forest Protection  FOREST

Tree planting and forest reservation

The environment is what we see around us e.g. sea, rivers, lakes, plants, animals etc.

Presently, the ozone layer which is supposed to be covering the earth to prevent the intensive heat from the sun from reaching the earth has been destroyed through a number of ways by some human activities thus putting both flora and fauna at stake.

The savanna which used to occupy a few hectares in the north had even stretched to the southern hemisphere in Ghana.

My school, being a member of the Green Peace of Ghana, was invited during the Armed Forces Week Celebration (with the theme "Partners for Development") to partake in tree and forest planting exercises at Dwaase in Ashanti with the aim of reducing erosion and conserving the soil.

The school gave a talk after the tree planting exercise on how to protect the environment to make it a better place for all. They were advised that for every tree cut, a minimum of five should be planted. In addition, a fire Volunteer was established and equipped with the necessary materials to stop bush fires, which have increased of late, and to protect the trees planted so as to improve the environment.
