“The tree planting has to be embraced by all nationals because trees are part of the country’s development assets because they attract tourists and a good example is Mabira that continuously earned revenue to the country,” she noted.


She added: “All the disasters that Uganda is facing like the Bulambuli tragedy where several people lost their lives, are due to deforestation in the country yet that can be addressed easily without injecting a single coin.”


Gen. Elly Tumwine, the Technical Advisor Youth Go Green Campaign, explained that there is gas emission which pollutes the environment calling for the need to plant trees to ensure the environment is saved from pollution.


Meanwhile, President Museveni is preparing to launch the first ever youth tree planting campaign in Kampala along the Northern by pass scheduled for April 22.


In this annual co-operation tree planting campaign many cooperate companies have been called upon to participate in the tree planting along all the National Roads across the country.
