National Tree Planting Project Timber Association Is The Answer
On June 5th this year, His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio whilst addressing his audience during the celebration of the World Environment Day, launched the National Tree Planting, Reforestation and Afforestation of Degraded Lands and Coastal Areas Project in order to develop Community Forests in all the sixteen districts of Sierra Leone.
The project according to the President is set to target an initial 10,000 youth comprising at least 50 percent women.
With that in mind, many citizens have now called on the president and the Ministry of Environment to put the Timber Association of Sierra Leone at the forefront in the implementation of the said project in order to achieve its intended aims and objectives.
This is because the Timber Association is one of the key stakeholders in the forestry industry and the environment as a whole whose members are made up of largely youth and women.
This therefore puts the association in a more suitable position to successfully implement the President’s National Tree Planting Project as a result of the experience of its members in tree planting exercise.
Year in, year out, members of the Timber Association have been engaged in national tree planting exercise across the country in areas most prone to environmental disasters. This is usually done in order to reforest the areas that are usually affected by timber logging.
With such experience and manpower, it is the belief of many citizens that the Timber Association is better placed to implement the National Tree Planting Project which has been launched by His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio.
