Tree Plantation

Planting a tree is a lifelong investment. Tree plantation refers to the process wherein tree seedlings are planted. Generally, it is done for forestry, land reclamation, or landscaping purposes. Ideally, the trees are planted in early spring before the bud-break. During that time, the weather conditions are cool. It helps plants to establish roots properly in the new location.
However, there are some plants, which can be planted throughout the growing season. But they need appropriate care. Apart from that, tropical and subtropical climates are such places where trees grow year round. It covers the following aspects:

Identify the trunk flare- The trunk expands at the trunk flare which should be partially visible after the tree has been planted. Thus, it needs to be identified properly.

Dig a shallow, broad planting hole- The planting hole should be shallow and broad. It should be 2-3 times wider than the root ball, but only as deep as the root ball.

Place the tree at a proper height- Take care to dig the hole to proper depth – and no more. If the tree is planted too deep, new roots will have difficulty developing because of a lack of oxygen.

Fill the hole gently and firmly- Now it's time to stabilize the plant firmly. To do this, pack soil around the base of the root ball. The care should be taken for the elimination of air pockets from the hole or the roots will get dry.

Mulch the base of the tree- An organic matter which is spread around the base of a tree is known as mulch. It is necessary to hold moisture, moderate soil temperature extremes, and reduce grass and weed competition.

Provide proper care- after planting, proper care is must. We should keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged. Besides, water trees at least once a week, barring rains, and more frequently during hot, windy weather.

Clean Water

Water is one of the most important substances on earth. All plants ans animals must have water to survive.

Fresh Air

Air is the prime cause of life on Earth. Without it, life would not be possible as seen on other planets in our Solar system.

Carbon Free

Chronic inhalation exposure to carbon black may result in temporary or permanent damage to lungs and heart.

5 Important facts about trees:

  • Do you know that approximately 10 tonnes of CO2 is emitted by an individual in one year? A single tree can remove tonnes of CO2 over its lifetime.
  • Approximately 10 people can get an year’s supply of oxygen to breath in from a single matured beech tree.
  • The shade provided by a tree keeps the air and ground cool around them which in turn leads to controlling Earth’s temperature.
  • Trees planted at the right place, around buildings, etc, can reduce air-conditioning costs by up to 50 percent and can save 20–50% in energy used for heating.
  • A tree with a 75 cm-diameter removes 70 times more pollution per year than does a tree with a 7.5 cm trunk

Albero’s Initiative:

Albero has undertaken this noble initiative to protect trees in an unusual way. Albero is trying to make UP and Uttrakhand greener. Hence, a better place to live beautifully, by planting more trees and translocating them instead of felling them. We at Albero, provide all services needed to translocate any tree which hinders the development of infrastructure and thus create a win-win situation for both the environment and the development of the city. We also take care of the tree post-translocation for about 6 months with proper treatment, to ensure that the tree sustains and survives, and gets used to the new environment.
