SERDANG, 26 Feb – A total of 550 trees of Karas species were planted on campus in the ‘MyTreeVolution programme, National Forest Restoration Project’ towards green growth to improve the sustainability and endurance.
The programme was led by Fellows of the CEO@Faculty Programme 2.0 which comprised a group of lecturers from public universities in Malaysia, with the aim to raise public awareness of green earth and to act as a platform for knowledge exchange and collaboration among public universities and government agencies as well as private agencies.
The programme, organised by Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and the Ministry of Higher Education, was held in Ladang 6, Serdang Campus, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM).
UPM, the programme organiser for the second time, had received cooperation from the Team Scomi’s CSR of Scomi Group Bhd and the UPM Students’ Association.
Director of the Programme, Dr. Samsuzana Abd Aziz said the programme was different from the usual tree-planting programme which involved only the process of planting and leaving.
He also said that such a process would give low impact based on the growth and death rates of the saplings.
“On the contrary, all trees planted through this programme will be monitored periodically using the application of information technology which could be accessed by public.
“The programme, MyTreeVolution, aims to green the environment with the activity of planting trees, and these trees will be closely monitored,” he added. - UPM
