Mega tree plantation drive to kick start in the city on Sunday

Surat : The green brigade in the city have embarked upon a mega tree plantation drive with the sole purpose to make the diamond city green. In the first of its kind initiative, about 1,000 trees will be planted across the city starting from Sunday.

Sources said that the event has been organised by the city-based green brigade ‘Grow native green forum’. The tree plantation will start from 7 am on Sunday.

Sanat Relia, vice-president of the South Gujarat Hotels and Restaurant Association (SHARA) told TBT, “This is a good initiative to make the city green. The recent devastating cyclone Taukte wreaked heavy destruction of the trees across the city. Hundreds of trees were uprooted across the city. We appreciate the green initiative of the forum”
