Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT), WB also took part in the initiative on the 29th of July, 2019 and the organizer was 'Mohan Tori' club of Bara Jaguli'. The Vice-Chancellor of MAKAUT, Prof. (Dr.) Saikat Maitra on this occasion said, " It is not enough to plant trees just once a year. It must be done throughout the year and at the same time the saplings must be taken care of." He remembered that he used to build a team and plant trees in the streets and take care of them throughout the year. Although it was not possible to save all the saplings, most of them grew up into trees.
On this occasion, the Finance Officer of the University Dr. Atri Bhowmik, Registrar Dr. Partha Pratim Lahiri, Assistant Registrar Mr. Anup Kumar Mukherjee, Advisor Prof. (Dr.) Shubhabrata Roychowdhury and the members of Mohan Tori were present.
Plantations of trees is important as they improve the life and fulfill essential needs of mankind. During photosynthesis, the trees breakdown food materials and consume carbon dioxide. Moreover, trees support life by providing habitat to different species such as squirrels, bees and birds. Trees cleanse the climate by absorbing carbon dioxide from the environment and releasing oxygen. The trees cool the environment through their leaves by absorbing the sun heat. Thus, there occurs cooling in the atmosphere. The trees provide shades to houses and streets. Trees clean the air by absorbing harmful chemicals such as nitrogen oxide and removing dust particles from the air by absorbing them in their leaves.
