Speech on Importance of Planting Trees

By dewdrop0204 May 06, 2013 452 Words
Praise be to Almighty Allah, the most merciful and compassionate creator who created a tree just from a tiny small seed and made that tree a blessing for mankind. May peace be upon Muhammad Sallah Alaihi Wassalam, the seal of prophets, who taught us how to cultivate and get our daily food from trees. My prayers are also for his companions. Respected judges, distinguished principals, teachers, parents and my dear friends. Assalaam Alaikum. Trees are Nature's wonders and a great gift to mankind as well as to all those who depend on them. Trees occupy an important, valuable and necessary place to our very existence. Trees are our best friends and without them life is not possible on the earth. Trees are the soothing music to our ears and the dancing fairies to our eyes. Yes, today I stand before you to speak on the importance of planting trees. To imagine the importance of trees let’s try to breathe in some air. Assume that it cannot be done. What happens to us? Yes! we suffocate without air to breathe in. Although we can live without food for some days and water for some hours we cannot live without oxygen for a moment even. Without oxygen, human and the animal world will die away. Trees make the oxygen and spread it in the air. Due to the over use of machines in factories, and vehicles on the roads, the air surrounding us is polluted with poisonous gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and chlorofluorocarbons. One of the great functions each tree offers is the sequestering of carbon dioxide. Trees naturally remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during the state of photosynthesis and in turn releases the pertinent gas, Oxygen as a byproduct. In this natural function alone, trees directly reduce the growth of the Greenhouse Effect and counteract Global Warming. In addition, trees provide us with flowers, fruits and vegetables, fodder for animals, wood, paper and provide cool shadow from the scorching sun. Trees bring rains and stop soil erosion. They give us so many such good things and yet expect nothing in return. Since trees are a powerful and vital tool that directly ensures our survival, we should make a habit to plant more and more trees. We should be doing this as an individual task, as well as a society level work. I insist all my friends out there to plant at least one tree for yourself. To conclude my speech I would like to quote this famous saying by Dr. Thomas Fuller “He that plants trees loves others beside himself.” True to say, we should be planting not only for us, but for the coming generations. Thank you, wassalaam alaikum
