In Nepal, we have a saying: "Hariyo bana Nepalko dhan." This means "Green forest is the wealth of Nepal". But because of the increase in the population, our forests are being destroyed, mainly for firewood. In mountain areas awareness programs are necessary to prevent forest fires as well as to promote the importance of preserving existing forest areas.
Reforestation is the process of planting trees and converting bare land into new forests. Make a difference by being prepared to get your hands dirty and help to restore our rapidly disappearing forests which contain many unique, beautiful and useful plants as well as providing animals and birds with a place to live. We also need the forest to provide us with clean, fresh air.
