Story

Hi Friends, The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is right now. History shows that it was nature that helped Bangalore grow – and now the city is destroying it.

Since 2013 we started planting trees in bengaluru with our friends and other company support and so far we have planted nearly 23,000+ trees across kolar, mandya, Tumkur, bidadi and other rural areas. Now we have planned to plan huge number of trees across Bengaluru due to Air pollution, Metro Railway projects, Road widening.

We recently started our Vidyarambham Karishyaami Charitable Trust on Feb 2018. We are mainly concentrating on Environment, Children Education and Sports.

We Vidyarambham Karishyaami Charitable Trust are planning to plant 10 Lakh Trees and within end of this year 50,000 Trees we are planned to plant saplings across Bengaluru for better environment.

Currently we have 70+ Volunteers to support us for planting trees and Current situation in Bangalore, 50,000 trees were felled to widen a series of streets in the late 2000s. And between 2011 and 2014, 9,281 trees were felled for the City’s metro and other road-widening projects. The City’s peri-urban outskirts – once full of orchards – have also lost hundreds of trees to pave the way for the expansion of a City whose 52 percent growth rate between 2001 and 2017 was the highest in India.”

The maximum trees were chopped in 2013-14 -20,155 -when 5,309 cases were booked. In 2014-15 and 2015-16, 17,917 and 13,206 trees were lost respectively, according to data accessed from the ministry of environment, forests and climate change (MoEF).

Each of us is trying our best to protest against global warming and protect our environment, but to control global warming and protect the environment we need to control things which impact the environment. Most of us participate in rallies to protect the environment and some of us plant wisely on every environmental day. Planting a tree should be done by each individual, that is the way to protect our environment.

Social media has provided an easier way for once isolated groups of people to connect and coordinate, and often to ratchet up public pressure on nature-blind administrators.

As shown in our previous research in Bengaluru, street trees reduced ambient air temperatures by as much as 5.6°C. Some estimates warn that children born in cities of today have a lowered life expectancy of as much as 5-7 years because of air pollution.

Kindly support us and be the change. Your contribution towards "Planting trees across Bengaluru" is much appreciated.
