Raise community awareness

Recently, Phu Giao district has enhanced tree planting activities. This activity received positive responses from party committees, authorities, branches, unions and people in the area. The spirit of self-conscious and emulation in planting trees and flowers at agency headquarters, schools, hamlets, and neighborhoods spreads, and the appearance of the countryside becomes more prosperous.

Doan Van Dong, Chairman of Phu Giao District People's Committee, said that planting trees is just the beginning, caring for and preserving trees to grow well is a regular job and the responsibility of the entire society. This is a practical activity that contributes to improving the environment, adapting to climate change, and developing sustainably. The specific goal of Phu Giao district is to green and plant flowers on commune roads to reach 60%, university roads to reach 50% - 100%, forest coverage rate to reach over 80%... Schools in the district must plant trees to provide shade, agency headquarters, hamlet offices, public lands must plant trees, flowers to spread that spirit among the people.

At the launching ceremony of "Eternal Tree Planting Festival in gratitude to Uncle Ho" in 2024 organized by the Provincial People's Committee in Di An City on May 15, Mai Hung Dung, Member of Provincial Party Standing Committee, Standing Vice Chairman of Provincial People's Committee, said: “Tree planting day we commemorate Uncle Ho and begin the series of activities “For a green Binh Duong” and “Civilized Saturday”, together committing to a sustainable future. Accordingly, to achieve the goal, localities in the province need to proactively organize specific and practical activities to encourage both the political system and the people to participate in planting trees."

Don't "follow" the trend

Mr. Mai Hung Dung said that the province's policy is to plant trees that will live, not to plant according to the movement but to create concentrated forests and green parks to improve the environment and create beauty for the community. After planting, trees must be monitored, managed, cared for and protected in accordance with procedures and regulations, ensuring economical planting of trees. In today's complicated weather and climate conditions, afforestation and tree planting units need to have effective fire prevention and fighting plans.
