Monthly Tree Planting 2020
Monthly tree planting at North Selangor Peat Swamp Forest
UPDATE: 25 JULY 2020 & 22 AUGUST 2020 TREE PLANTING CANCELLED
We would like to inform that the upcoming tree planting event at Raja Musa Forest Reserve that is scheduled on July 25, 2020 (Saturday) and August 22, 2020 (Saturday) has been cancelled. This decision is taken due to the current situation of COVID-19. GEC puts the health and safety of our volunteers and participants of paramount importance. We sincerely feel this action taken is in the best interest of all.
The 2020 monthly tree planting activity is an annual activity organised to promote the importance of North Selangor Peat Swamp Forest to the public. This activity is aimed at conserving the various species of peat swamp and restoring the deteriorated area to its former glory, retaining the original characteristics of the peat swamp forest. It promotes environmental awareness and the planting activity is designed to attract different interest groups, including children. The tree planting activity is sponsored by the organisers/funders; therefore, there will be no imposed costs on the participants.
The participation is on a first-come, first-served basis, limited to 100 participants (maximum 40 participants/organisation) with 400-600 seedlings for each of the planting session — in one-hectare area of the forest reserve.
The half-day activity is a collaborative effort by the Selangor State Government, Selangor Forestry Department, Friends of North Selangor Peat Swamp Forest and Global Environment Centre. The rehabilitation programme is supported by the HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad and the Selangor State Government.
