Ho Rotary Club, Forestry commission plant 950 trees
The Rotary Club of Ho alongside the Forestry Commission have planted 950 trees within the Ho municipality.
The Rotary Club of Ho and the Forestry Commission have jointly planted 950 trees along the stretch from the youth resource centre under construction to Mawuli School within the Ho Municipality.
The joint effort between the Rotary Club of Ho and the Forestry commission saw over forty people drawn from the two organizations planting and caging the trees along the stretch.
George Agbenorwoshi, the district manager for the Forestry commission praised the Rotary commission for the initiative to plant trees noting that “People don’t normally partner with the Forestry Commission when undertaking tree planting exercises causing the trees planted not to survive because they are often planted without any expertise”.
Mr Agbenorwoshie who bemoaned the impious encroachment on the Kabakaba forest reserve called on the municipal assembly to take immediate action.
The president of the Rotary Club of Ho, Kartey Kumordji said the initiative falls under one of the Rotary Club’s six areas of focus which is ‘economic and community development’.
He said the members of the Ho Rotary Club have noticed the increasing spate of development which is quickly replacing the trees that hitherto canopied almost all streets of the Ho township.
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million-plus people forming who team up to work towards solving some of the world’s problems including eradicating polio.
