Policy Framework For Mandatory Tree Planting By Families Advocated


Forestation remains a sine- qua- non towards improving the society’s ecosystem.

A Pharmacist, Sir George Ezenwa, who made the assertion while speaking on the dangers of deforestation, decried the gradual disappearance of vegetable fruits such as cocoyam and pumpkins and the people’s lukewarm attitude to subsistence farming.

He called for a policy framework to make it mandatory for the yearly planting of trees by every family for the enrichment of the environment, stressing that in some countries, felling of tress cannot be approved without replacing them.

Sir George called on the Obiano administration to strengthen its aforestation policy to checkmate incidences of erosion in the state, calling for the creation of stimulus which may come in the way of educating the masses to encourage subsistence farming.
