: Stop hypocrisy in PR tree planting among firms.

It's ironic that leaders pose for a photo when planting trees but they don't follow up how the trees are nurtured and by who,at an event that was conducted in nyanza some trees were planted but only a few survived due to lack of proper care and maintenance,this sends a clear message that mostly many trees despite being planted they don't reach maturity due to negligence,the residents said that they are not even educated on why they should plants and their benefits,some don't even understand what is climate change and climate crisis which is very risky and misinformed.My plea would be when we embark on a tree planting exercise let's not rejoice for the sake of the media and PR,but let's have genuine motive on this

    This is a great piece.Most people do not follow up to see how the trees were nurtured or how they are fairing.

          Tree planting should be done for the love and care of our nature and not trying deceiving others through such activities.

            I'd hate for people to use tree planting as PR to advance their agendas. This should certainly not be a norm
