LASPARK To Begin Community Tree Planting

The Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) is to begin community tree planting across the 20 Local Government Areas (LGAs) and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) of the state. The campaign has “Plant a tree”as its theme.

At its weekly management meeting, its General Manager, Mrs. Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola said the community tree planting, sensitisation and awareness campaign was in line with the sustainability of the green policy of the state, noting that it has become crucial to continuously reawaken the consciousness of the people to plant trees and combat the negative effects of climate change in their community.

Mrs Adebiyi-Abiola reiterated that when people continue to cut trees, they kill life, reduce biological diversity and cheat posterity. Therefore, the need to plant trees in our community is germane to healthy living.
She said the exercise would cut across the state with the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), non-governmental organisations (NGOs), students, green compliance organisations, government institutions as well as community development associations (CDAs)/community development committees (CDCs).
