If you have ever flown in an aero-plane you will understand how our woodlands are getting scarce and sparser. You would see that these green patches are now limited to the rivers, streams and steep areas that are unapproachable for farming.
You might love to watch a similar green carpet in the urban area we inhabit. We need to make changes and plant more trees. Trees are the fundamental and crucial reasons for the protection of safe drinking water sources, crucial for shrinking wildlife habitat, and critical for attracting rains.
The oak tree is epitome of strength, it symbolizes endurance, power, and royal attributes by its sheer size. There are around 600 types of oak trees according to Wikipedia and many countries consider oak trees to be a treasure because it provides green cover, shade and shelter to many species of birds.
Native trees are very tolerant and make excellent features in landscaping. They are an asset to the environment and wild life support system. Once fully grown and established it does not tolerate changes in the root zone and can collapse if its roots are disturbed. A beautiful oak tree’s root protection zone area should not be weakened. Architects, builders, gardeners and home owners should respect and carefully plan the region while growing the trees.
