Grow Trees with Love

September 30th, 2011 Posted by environment 0 thoughts on “Grow Trees with Love”

They say if one wants to be immortalized, one must do either one of these three things — write a book, be part of a film, or plant a tree.

I went tree planting last week, and the experience was harder than I thought. Maybe because things have not been organized as planned, and perhaps, maybe because the location which was given to us for us to plant our trees isn’t really that a-okay.

Right now, all I am praying for is for our trees to at least grow (and hopefully they have not been washed out by Pedring). We poured our love when we planted, but sadly, I do not really think the place where we planted was suitable for the plant to grow huhuhu (it was roadside of a mountain). I was all excited thinking that we would plant on a terrain, but no… haaay.

It’s just sad, whenever I think that my trees would not grow big 🙁 … It’s my first time to plant on a mountain, and really, I wish mother nature will take care of my plants.

I read somewhere that a single tree could produce oxygen enough for ten people. Imagine how better our air would be if all of us would plant a tree.
