NTPD 2015 Flyer

For this year’s observance of National Tree Planting Day (NTPD), the Forestry Department is urging persons to plant more trees in urban centers across the island given the high levels of carbon dioxide emission in those areas.

Also, with hundreds of hectares of forests affected by fires since the start of the year, persons living in and around the affected areas are also being urged to join in the cause of restoring the island’s forests by planting out these areas.
