Tree plantation is not just something that should be done; instead, it is a necessity, the urgent need of the hour. Planting of trees is especially important to protect our environment against air pollution and global warming. Therefore, NSS Unit, PHCET Rasayani organized Tree Plantation Drive in the Month of April 2021 and was a huge success, empowering students with substantial knowledge of environment and plants. The main agenda of the campaign was to enable the students to enhance their intellectual, social, personal and emotional growth. Total 70 saplings were planted by volunteers, students and faculty to accomplish this task.

It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses, we must plant more trees.- George Eliot
Humans, animals and the environment depend upon trees for survival. Therefore, as deforestation continues, we must put back what we’re taking away.
Amey Kadam: NSS Volunteer at PHCET
He says: Start by planting a sapling in your home. Nurture it, feel the soil in your bare hands while planting, water it regularly. And you’ll feel the soulful part of the nature that loves you back.

Shivani Gotavade: NSS Volunteer at PHCET
She says: “A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; one who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and the one who plants kindness gathers love.”
Plant trees and gather love

He always wanted to have his garden but didn’t get any time.
So he thought this was the best time for him to start so, he started small and planted a sapling.
