In India most of the people will worship plants and trees, each and every tree or plant has an unique identity. Not only it gives oxygen to us but also many trees and plants roots, leaves, flowers and fruits are used in medicines. Now a days because of the road widening and construction of buildings people are cutting the trees and destroying the environment. Because of the less trees, we are facing many problems like air pollution, no rains, very hot in summer etc., I feel it is our responsibility to protect the environment. If we want a smooth life then we must plant the plants again. At least for future generation will have a good environment. Your suggestions and comments in this regard. Thanks in advance. Have a nice day.

Now, I have to admit that I've never thought about each kind of tree and plant having an identity of their own, but I do certainly know that they are all important to each and every one of us that are living in the world because plants do give off oxygen that we need in order to be able to breathe. There are also a lot of plants and fruits from plants that we are able to eat to keep us nourished and trees will also keep us sheltered from the weather at times as well. Yes, I do think that it is important to make sure that the plants and trees are replenished in the world.

This is very true, I went to Bali, Indonesia couple times when the first time I went there I saw so many trees were worshiped but when I came back to visit there two years ago I kind of disappointing. Bali has changed a lot. It wasn't as nice as before because they change the nature into big hotel and it makes the temperature very hot. Time to safe the earth.

Hi TheIzers, see this change can be good building nice big hotels and buildings but cutting down the trees and making how far genuine one we must think. Where we are going we must think about it. What you said is there everywhere in the name of development but in fact it is not really. We are inviting more problems. Global warming is one of the reason that we are cutting down the trees. We must educate our children if we cut down one tree for that we must plant 2 plants more. Nice response by you. Have a nice day.

I remember my province as a place full of trees and plants growing at the roadside. The thick forest where me and my friends used to play hide and seek during school vacation. The houses with flowering plants and flower gardens as well. Now all I can see are new houses, buildings and the even flowering plants becomes rare. So sad that the next generation might not see some flowers and tress in real, but only through pictures.

Hi angelgee, yeah even me also remember my school days we used to play under the trees keeping all the toys with one mat etc., We used to enjoy a lot. Now itself we can't see that. Our children doesn't have time to play and i didn't see they play under the tree. I afraid some days later we have to show them the picture as how many types of trees will be there. lol. Have a nice day.

Technology, development and construction are becoming more important than trees. Each and every plant is beneficial to mankind in its own way. They have medicinal values also. This is the reason why people believe herbal products. As a human being it is our responsibility also to take care of our environment and save it.

Hi shrutiathanikar, I don't think so shrutiathanikar, first we need trees then only other things. We are getting many things from the trees, fruits, food, fresh air everything without this how human beings will survive and where is this all technology etc., So apart from all these development my opinion is we must also concentrate on plants and trees to protect the earth and future generation. Have a nice day.

they really are a part of us. without them, we will also suffer. the fact that logger cut down trees and don't replace them is what makes it worse. even if they replace it, it will take several years for the tress to grow and be mature enough. that's why there is always flood and landslides because we never take care of mother earth and plant trees.

Hi cherish, true without them we can't do anything, we will suffer a lot for everything. Oxygen, food, water etc., I think there is no living things in the earth. That is why we must protect our environment and forests. Thanks for your sharing. Have a nice day.

I got much disappointed and got worried as well as angry when I reached yesterday night at 8:30 at home. I moved to a new house 3 months back and certain sun-shade work was pending (the contractor half way finished and took an extra of Rs 5000) and run way. Any way, I wanted to complete the work with a different contractor and they were expected to come to finish the work. I have few rare plants placed on the grill top and I used to maintain very well. In fact I forget to take out the plants before leaving for office and I called up my wife and son to keep out the plant pots out and let them work peacefully. However, the workers said no need to move it, we will take care of while doing the fittings. When I reached at home, I noticed on the plants without even asking anything. I found it was in-tact. Later in the mid-night, when I gone to the kitchen to took some water, I saw a small branch of the plant kept inside the dust bin. When I examined in detail, I got a small bud of rose also!! I opened the window and inspected, yes, a small bunch got removed ... I woke up wife and asked about it and she told it happend when they did the work. Yes, just 2 leaf and a small branch, when it lost from the plant, I got hurt. Yes, I love nature and only because of them we are breathing peacefully, but who cares - people want money, more and more money...

Hi anna, nice to hear that you love nature. I think 99.9% people will love nature. I planted many small plants which i like some of them are croutons, some are flower plants and some are creepers. I too love gardening. Have a nice day

What you have written is very true,jotomy.Plants and trees are the very life and soul of our planet.Without them the entire earth would become barren, a vast desert.How terrible it would be if such a thing ever ocurred.Life on earth would be destroyed completely.All living creatures,animals,birds,reptiles and insects would die and become extinct.Mankinds greed for construction would be one of the main causes for destroying the greenery.Global warming,which has already begun, would cause changes in the climate and environment and lead to catastrophes of unimaginable magnitude.Yes, we all have to pitch in and do our best to preserve the dwindling green forest cover which is rapidly vanishing from the face of the planet.If we don`t then all would be lost and ultimately even man would disappear forever from the earth.

Hi veejay, we get food from the plants, fruits, flowers. It not only provide us oxygen for living but also food. If we want a good environment we must plant plants and trees. Have a nice day.
