Plant more trees

While we need to plant more and more trees in our city, Dhaka University is cutting down the big trees which have been giving us shades for years and making the environment worth living. There are not so much trees on Dhaka University campus as on Jahangirnagar University campus. The atmosphere at JU is always cool and comfortable. Why? It's because of the trees, there is always a kind of natural coolness in the air. Trees are very vital elements of the nature, the more we cut them down, the more the nature heads toward imbalance.

People should be encouraged to plant trees. Otherwise, time will come when we will see the blue sky and green forests in the animation films or pictures only.
