Local Phoenix landscaper and owner of Palm Garden Centre, Shan Gungaparsad, is excited about going green this National Arbour Week.

As part of this annual initiative, the environment lover will be donating indigenous trees to various schools and local organisations. Last week, he paid a visit to Greenbury Primary School and donated trees.

Gungaparsad who has been involved in the plant and tree business for nearly three decades said, “All individuals have a role to play in keeping the environment green.  It is admirable how pupils and teachers do their part in maintaining the balance in nature.”

The centre aims to donate 100 indigenous trees and have already donated 30 within the first week of Arbour week. He also donated to Lenham Primary School, Suffield Home School and Highway Hospice.

Trees are known to serve an important role in the environment by supplying oxygen.  Cutting them for commercial purposes will affect the world. Gungapersad added that it is sad that many people overlook the importance of planting a tree.
