I have always been acutely aware of the critical importance of tree conservation and the ecological consequences of diminishing green cover. Hence, planting trees is one of the most effective ways to mitigate the ill effects of climate change. And to top it, when these trees are fruit-bearing it also helps in promoting nutritional security and economic empowerment of the masses."
