300 Thousands Trees on the Slope of Mount Agung

300 thousand trees will be planted on the critical land at Mount Agung, Karangasem Bali. More than 60 hectare of that critical land will be planted.

This greening effort will be realized in the beginning of 2010 and according to the plan will be conducted gradually. The coordination of this action will be the group of environmental care called “Bali Kedas.”

For the first step, the land will be planted for about 60 hectare which is located in Temukus Village, Rendang District Karangasem. Tress that planted reached numbers of 300 thousand trees consists of Sandalwood trees, Majegau trees, and white, yellow as well as green frangipani trees.

In the next 30 years, the slope of Mount Agung will be planted with hundred and thousands of trees and it is hope that the critical land condition will change into a green and dense forest.
Besides the greening of hundred and thousands of trees, at that place also we will release animals that could live in that kind of habitat such as birds and more others,” added Indrawan.

Instead of merely conducting greening activity of hundred and thousand of trees, environmental care group “Bali Kedas” also will actively campaign the anti plastic rubbish movement around the greening location and entire Bali.

“Environmental Care Movement in Bali was begun from their concerned toward the environment that is gradually damaged, especially for forests in Bali due to the society’s indifference toward their environmental sustainability,” said Indrawan.
