The plantation itself signifies its meaning, to plant. While the world is busy with its ever-growing population and necessity for advanced technology, nobody remains concerned for the environment. People are cutting down trees for paper, wood as fuel and also clearing lands for residences, this creates an impact on flora and fauna, millions of animals lose shelter sometimes even life, as a result, they have no option but to come on streets in hunger. The need for plantation has become even greater these days because of the growing pollution in the environment. If we plant more and more trees they give us fruits and leaves that serve as food for birds, animals as well as human beings.

The National Tree Plantation Day or the National Festival of Trees Planting, also known as Van Mahotsav in India, is held from 1st July to 7th July every year. On that day, in every school, colleges, and offices, tree plantation can be noticed. Tree plantation is the way toward moving seedlings, starting with one spot then onto the next for various purposes. Besides, there are different purposes for tree plantation; however, the most significant are forestry, land recovery, and landscaping. Each procedure of tree plantation is significant and one of a kind in its specific manner. Tree plantation is necessary to provide all the species living on the earth with all the resources and needs for them to survive. Trees help to combat global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide, removing and storing carbon while releasing oxygen back into the air. They also reduce wind speeds and cool the air as they lose moisture and reflect heat upwards from their leaves.
Trees and soil erosion
The large canopies of many trees help to prevent soil erosion by reducing the impact of rain onto the ground. The water drains down the leaves and branches and soaks into the soil rather than forcefully hitting the ground, which decreases the amount of soil that is washed away with the rain. Trees reduce the effect of erosive forces using their root systems and foliage. The leaves and branches of trees create a flexible screen that reduces the force of wind and rain in the surrounding area.
