Tree-planting is the process of transplanting tree seedlings, generally for forestry, land reclamation, or land scaping purpose. It differs from the transplantation of larger trees in arboriculture, and from the lower cost but slower and less reliable distribution of tree seeds. Trees contribute to their environment over long periods of time by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe.
23000+ Trees since 10th April 2016
190 Consecutive Sundays of Work
The Green Saviours team in the upcoming year 2017 and from then on is working on plans to establish forests especially on barren hill tops in and around Belagavi. The effort will be a joint initiative with the local administration, the Department of Forestry and the local citizens.
Massive plantation will be carried out by sowing seeds of native trees and ensuring provisions and protection through water harvesting and the active participation of people living in the region around the said site.
Forest management is a branch of forestry concerned with overall administrative, legal, economic, and social aspects, as well as scientific and technical aspects, such as silviculture, protection, and forest regulation. This includes management for aesthetics,fish, recreation, urban values, water, wilderness, wildlife, wood products,forest genetic resources, and other forest resource values. Management can be based on conservation, economics, or a mixture of the two. Techniques include timber extraction, planting and replanting of different species, cutting roads and pathways through forests, and preventing fire.
Transplantation of Trees
In agriculture and gardening transplanting or replanting is the technique of moving a plant from one location to another. Most often this takes the form of starting a plant from seed in optimal conditions, such as in a greenhouse or protected nursery bed, then replanting it in another, usually outdoor, growing location. This is common in market gardening and truck farming, where setting out or planting out are synonymous with transplanting. In the horticulture of some ornamental plants, transplants are used infrequently and carefully because they carry with them a significant risk of killing the plant.
These drives are a unique initiative of the Green Saviours team and derive inspiration from two little kids who had come for our plantation drive with their own Mango sapling which they had picked up from the road sides. Thousands of such saplings of native trees grown on the road sides and in fenced areas but are often lost in the cleaning up operations.
The Green Saviours team harvests these saplings and transfers them into bags at the Forest Nursery and holds them as stock for future plantations. Hundreds of such saplings of local trees like Mango, Jambool, Rain Tree, Jack fruit, etc have been harvested over multiple drives in the city.
