Gumla: About 90 thousand saplings to be planted in a village of Jharkhand


The saplings are planned to be planted by the forest department in the rainy season around the month of July.


Kanarova forest of Basia block of Gumla, on the banks of which land of about 1.25 acre lays unused would be used to plant an enormous amount of plants and saplings. The amount of saplings is supposedly 90 thousand in counting.


Gumla is a small city in Jharkhand. The Forest, Environment, and Climate Change Department of Gumla have planned out the whole process. Out of the total amount of saplings, 83 thousand saplings are of wood and fruit species.


Such a huge amount of plantation would expand the forest of Kanarova. It will also protect the area from encroachment by the villagers living in the nearby villages. The banks of many forests lay empty and such steps can help the environment and the species that might be losing a home due to urbanization.


It has been reported previously that the people of the nearby villages have been encroaching on all the vacant land on the edges of the forests. In such scenarios, people build wells as well to water their produce.


Some people even build houses to live nearby. Such encroachment of the forest land also enables the wildlife to wander in the habitat of the people living there. Loss of life and property can be the result of it.


The saplings are planned to be planted by the forest department in the rainy season around the month of July. The department has already started the work. The work for digging pits and making the soil suitable and acceptable to saplings has already started.


The DFO of Gumla, Srikanth said that under the plantation and soil conservation scheme, there is a plan to plant Kanarova on the edges of the forest. 83000 saplings of wood and fruit species will be planted. This project is going to help the forest and its ecosystem expands. It will also make the land encroachment free. The plants after growing would benefit the locals and people living nearby.
