TreeBox Initiative and Rotary Club are calling Mumbaikars keen on citizen social responsibility (CSR) to help build a forest and set a world record in the process. The two groups will attempt a world record on September 20 with a tree plantation event to create a “Mega Man Made Forest”.
The Rotary District 3141 and The Tree Box initiative are inviting citizens to celebrate the Month of Million Trees by creating a Mega Man-Made Forest on a 97-acre piece of land. Join over 200 professional farmers and 200 volunteers, and plant a million native trees from 20th September 2020 to 20th October 2020 in the rustic village of Pik, Wada in Palghar.
2 lakh native trees are being planted on 20th September, followed by 8 lakh trees in the next 30 days. These 30 days of tree plantations will be held every year as ‘Month Of Million Trees’ where tree-loving volunteers would plant a total of 10 lakh trees in 30 days. This is an official attempt at setting a record for the Book of World Records London.
The Tree Box initiative is a social organization with technical efficiencies in developing Man Made Forests while Rotary District 3141 is the annual District Project involving 105 Rotary Clubs across Mumbai. Both organisations have associated with the local adivasi villagers to take care of these plantations, including watering and pruning until they grow to a self-sustaining stage. Once the trees grow to a height of 12-15 feet, they will be handed over to the Forest department and will thus be officially added to the official count of trees.
The development of the Mega Man Made Forest climate hygiene benefit. It will not only improve the climatic conditions but also increase the oxygen emissions to a great extent. This is a citizen-driven activity where anyone can come and help in planting trees at the site and also sponsoring a tree for as little as Rs. 100.
Individuals sponsoring 101 trees shall receive a certificate from the World Book of Records. Corporates and NGOs sponsoring 1001 trees will be called world record holders and shall receive a certificate announcing their contribution to the drive.
