NATIONAL TREE PLANTING DAY

Marondera RDC Staff Commemorates the National Tree Planting Day.

On Friday the 2nd of December 2022 all council staff gathered to commemorate the National Tree Planting Day. A total of 210 whistling pine trees were planted around the perimeter fence and on open spaces. However the Chief Executive Officer had the opportunity to plant the tree of the year, which is the Waterberry tree (Syzygium Cordatum) or  Mukute in vernacular.

 In his remarks the CEO highlighted that over the past years the district has lost many hectares of indigenous forest to wood poachers, tobacco curing, urban household energy requirements, agricultural land preparation, however the replacement rate has not been able to keep pace. He implored individual workers take on the culture of planting trees at their homes and to inculcate the same in their families, and the community that council is mandated to serve. He further implored all stakeholders to join hands to spread awareness on the importance of vegetation. Lastly the he announced that the District tree planting event was scheduled to take place at Mandoga Primary on the 7th of December 2022 where 1600 trees will be planted before the activity would be replicated in all the other 22 wards. The school is one of the institutions constructed under Devolution.

The District Forestry officer who also attended the event informed the gathering that Zimbabwe commemorates the National Tree planting Day on the first Surtaday of December every year. For the year 2022, he said the nation was commemorating the day under the theme“Trees And Forests For Ecosystem Restoration And Improved Livelihoods” and that the Water berry was the tree of the year.  Mr Bwawa also highlighted on the uses of the water berry tree which he said include fuel, fodder, apiculture, timber, dyestuff, medicine. Lastly he also echoed the CEOs sentiments that communities should shun deforestation and encourage reforestation.
