Caring for trees and the environment is the social responsibility of every individual. The Plant-A-Tree Programme is a platform for organisations and individuals to actively participate in the greening of our City in Nature by planting trees.
Every tree planted will also contribute to the OneMillionTrees movement to plant one million more trees across Singapore over ten years till 2030. This aims to restore nature back to our city and redouble our efforts to green our urban infrastructure on an unprecedented scale. Read more about the movement here.
Why plant trees?
Why plant more trees in Singapore? Aren’t there enough trees already? Well, definitely not.
Trees are like any other living organism, which will grow old and become weak. Hence, in order to sustain our lush greenery, we need to constantly plant new trees.
Plant a tree and enhance Singapore’s greenery
The aim of this programme is to give you a chance to donate to the cost of a young tree and plant it yourself.
It’s a special kind of connection with Nature when you plant a tree yourself.
|How do trees benefit us?
||Why is this important?
||What is in it for the community?
|More than aesthetic appeal
||The future of our environment
||Keeping us healthy and happy
|Trees beautify our environment but their values lie beyond the aesthetics. They remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, increase biodiversity in our environment, prevent soil erosion, as well as provide shade and lower the atmospheric temperature.
||We all work hard for the financial security for our families and to achieve a comfortable lifestyle. How about securing the future of our environment for the generations to come? The Plant-A-Tree Programme is your ‘green investment’ for the future.
||Studies have shown that when people are surrounded by greenery, they are measurably healthier and build better family relationships. Visual exposure to trees is also known to reduce stress levels in our fast-paced world.
