If you plant trees, you will feel good: PM

Highlighting the importance of tree plantation, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged the countrymen to plant trees.

She said, “If you plant trees, you feel good and your mind will remain always fresh. Besides it will bring your solvency … you feel well if you eat a green chilli of the tree planted by yourself. So, let’s come to plant trees together.”

The premier said this while inaugurating National Tree Plantation Campaign at her official Ganabhaban residence on Thursday (July 16).

She said, the natural environment needs to be protected. Besides, we need nutrition. We plant trees thinking the food and economic progress. We have to plant three saplings — one fruit, one wood, and one medicinal.

“Today, I launched the distribution and plantation of one crore saplings by planting three trees — ‘chalta’, ‘tetul’ and ‘chhatiyan’ – on the Ganabhaban premises,” she said.
