Tree Plantation Drive@ XIMB

On the 29th of July the XIMB campus looked even more resplendent than the bright afternoon. And the reason?? The Social Responsibility Cell of XIMB was on its way to organize its first mega event for the new academic session, A Tree Plantation Drive!!
The importance of trees is not concealed from anyone. Yet we hardly ever do acknowledge their contribution in maintaining the balance of our eco-system. The present forest and tree cover in the country according to the State of Forest Report 2001 of the Forest Survey of India is 23.03 per cent. According to the National Forest Policy, the country is required to achieve a forest cover target of 33 per cent cover by 2012.
The SRC took up this noble cause as its first step towards its vision making a difference. A total of 21 trees were planted by the students inside the campus. Watching the campus aglow with the green aura was definitely a treat to every eye!! And we are sure reading this many of you would be contemplating a similar drive in the place you live in!! After all of us are the inhabitants of the great Mother Earth...and the responsibility to protect her lies with each one of us!!
