More than 250,000 economic trees are expected to be planted across the Bono Region, under the Green Ghana Project, Mr Isaac Noble Eshun, the Bono Regional Manager of the Forest Service Division, said on Thursday.

The trees would comprise mahogany, cedrella, offramo, mango, coconut, cashew and cassia species.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), Mr Eshun appreciated the level of public enthusiasm towards the project, saying many institutions and individuals in the region had registered and taken delivery of the tree species for planting.

He explained the Green Ghana Project was a prerequisite to mitigate the impact of climate change and promote a sustainable environment and appealed to the public to participate in the nationwide tree planting exercise.

“Trees provide shades, re-green and promote environmental sustainability, and protect society against flooding and windstorm,” he said and advised the public to also help to nurture the trees.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
