Tree Planting

The environmental clun in our school had been waiting for the tree planting day.They had invited the Nobel Peace price winner Professor Wangari Maathai for the prize in his work.The nobel peace prize winner encouraged us to be observing the environmental pollution effects.She also encouraged us to be planting trees when we cut for example he said that ''If we cut one tree we should replace with twol''He also advised us not to be growing tree near water sources such as eucalyptus because they consume a lot of water leading to loss of water in the country.It also said cutting trees at all time will lead to desertification.After the short talk we started planting trees all over the school.
