The Upper East Regional Manager of the Forestry Commission, Emmanuel Yeboah has called on residents to see tree planting as a duty offered to mother nature and God, not mankind as it does not have an immediate reward.

Speaking at the ceremonial tree planting ground at the Bolgatanga Girls Senior High School in the Upper East Region, Mr Yeboah indicated that the benefit of tree planting was not a daily reward, but a reward for the foreseeable future.

“I want us here to know that as some of us will be planting trees today, we are not going to see the benefit today but our children will. It takes courage, and boldness to plant a tree. I must say that we those who are doing that, whether from afar or near, we are saviours for the next generation.”

He stressed, “yes, some of us will say that it is this government’s initiative hence we will not worry ourselves because we don’t belong to them. Yes, you may not belong to them, but your surroundings, Upper East, and Ghana belong to you. And it is your duty to protect it through tree planting. We are seriously losing our forest’s cover to desertification. So, if we don’t stand up collectively, we will have ourselves to blame in the near future.”

He added that his outfit has organized 26 seedlings distribution points at all the District offices, Forest Range Quarters and some Municipal and District Assemblies offices for interested individuals for free distribution.
