By Aaron Humes: Belize’s seven towns and two cities have agreed to plant 40 trees each in observance of 40 years of Independence in September.
The National Celebrations Commission (NCC) has collaborated with the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management to support the planting, partnered with community and youth groups.
Various varieties will be planted including Kenep (Spanish Lime), Soursop, Yellow Cortez, Golden Shower, Oleander, Bougainvillea, Hibiscus, Ficus, Ziricote, Cedar, and Mahogany trees and African, Royal and Areca palms.
The Commission said in a statement, “Belizeans must continue to work together to preserve and protect the nation’s environment. The NCC, therefore, encourages residents to reach out to local leaders to support the initiative by volunteering as custodians of these trees.”
