“2017 WANA ROPA” Tree Planting Programme – Trincomalee District

 

 

Sri Lanka is a tropical country having exotic vegetation. However, unfortunately the forest cover of Sri Lanka had been dropped to 29.7 percent by 2015.

‘Wana Ropa’, national tree planting programme was commenced in 2015 as a national event with the intention of increasing the forest cover in the country from 29. 7 percent to 32 percent by 2018.

The foremost goal of this programme is to ‘promote, preserve and maintain the forest cultivation in specific environment systems in order to preserve them, development of greeneries by planting trees and replacement of degraded lands through specific methodologies of tree planting’.

To accomplish these goals Trincomalee Regional Office of MEPA took its’ step to increase the forest cover by planting  coconut plants covering 2 acres in SLNS Kashyapa, Vakarei premises on 2nd of November 2017 under the patronage of Rear Admiral(Retd) Rohana Perera, chairman of MEPA with the expectation of expanding the cultivation for 5 more acres. The event was successfully completed with the help of Sri Lanka Navy staff at SLNS Kashyapa, Vakarei and MEPA staff.
