Social Forestry Day is good time to reflect on the health of our forests, and to help nurture them by planting trees around our homes, schools, villages, towns, and in barren hillsides.
So we – my family, that is – were happy that we had the opportunity to do something different yesterday: we saved a few trees!
Yes, I’m being dramatic, I know. What we did do was uproot a few of the smaller trees (small plants actually, especially rhododendron) along the Taba – Langjophakha road and transplant them in front of our house. The trees were destined to be destroyed, as they were in the path of the road-widening project that is currently going on along the road to Taba.
If they survive, we would have, in a way, saved them!
