Adopt a Tree

"The trees are God's great alphabet: With them He writes in shining green Across the world His thoughts serene."
Leonora Speyer

The advantages of planting a tree are manifold. Trees produce oxygen; purify the air by removing the main greenhouse gases - Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide; help in reduction of pollution; prevent soil erosion and flooding, and provide us with numerous necessities such as food, shelter and medicines.

Trees also play a very important part in sustaining and enhancing biological diversity of the planet.

‘Adopt a Tree Campaign’ was initiated by WWF-India in the year 2005 with the mission of promoting plantation of native species.

Since its launch, the Campaign has been providing all citizens an opportunity to nurture a tree to life. We encourage individuals, communities, corporate entities, schools, RWAs as well as other organizations to involve themselves in this Campaign.

Adopt a tree today…
 ... because nurturing a tree is like nurturing a friend for life

Those in Delhi NCR, interested in the campaign, may please collect the saplings from WWF-India office between 9:30 am to 5:30 pm. For interested individuals outside Delhi NCR, please email us at srana@wwfindia.net and fbraganza@wwfindia.net

Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.

Rabindranath Tagore, Fireflies, 1928
