Cities have become smoke chambers, soil has become toxic and water is impure, all because we forgot to create a place in our lifestyles for our Life Creators & Maintainers - TREES.
The time has come that we as Individuals, Organisation or Govt. create Nature Zones called STZs (Special Tree Zones) where Native Trees are protected and we can experience a breath of fresh and clean air. We can fight the menace of pollution- Land, air & water if we all create a small space for Trees Zones instead of just grasses in our parks, compounds & work areas.
STZs (SPECIAL TREE ZONES) do not require huge piece of land. A small patch of even 100 sqm with cluster of Trees planted closely together can provide all the ecological services that we need for a healthy & happy living. These native tree zones can be created anywhere & everywhere. Around human habitats, road & parks or in someone's backyard too protecting urban environment.
We welcome Corporate, Government bodies, Communities for the joint ventures with us to create Special Tree Zones (STZs) in public places of the cities.
STZs are living, self-willed ecosystem, a rich tapestry of life. This intimate dance of plant and animal, form and function, process and outcome is lacking in a plantation.
Ecological services which trees provide that give us fresh air, clean water, healthy soil and mitigate the effects of pollution, happen in an environment, where various factors living & non-living come together. This requires a special habitat, a nature zone where there is a cluster of mix species of native trees are working together, helping & supporting each other to make a difference . Individual trees planted randomly cannot do much for the urban ecology whereas even a small cluster can bring about a noticeable change.
Environment consists of everything that makes Human life possible- Water, Air, Land , Climate etc. And Trees Fix & Regulate them all.
