The whole world is facing the problem of global warming due to regular cutting of trees at huge level. Forests in developing countries like Nepal face degradation from the growing population's needs, conversion of forests into agricultural land and illegal logging. According to 350.org, concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is more than 390 parts per million (PPM), which is a serious threat to humans, ecosystems, biodiversity, agricultural production and all sorts of lives on the earth.
The problems of global warming and climate change, can be reduced through plantation of every single tree by some extent. In this attempt, 10,000 high oxygen producing trees including fruit plants will be planted and maintained regularly in different unutilized public land in southern parts of Nepal. There would be proper arrangement of water and fertilizer and with the maturity of the plants plots of trees will be handed over to the community on leasehold basis for their livelihood promotion.
A matured leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year. Promotion of culture of gifting a tree on birthdays and other memorable life events will surely increase number of trees day by day. Environment and air will be pure which would be helpful to reduce the number of death occurs from asthma, pneumonia and breath related other diseases. Plantation may not be a sole remedy to reduce global warming, yet it can be a sustainable easier solution available among us.
