Plantation

1.Plantation in Public Areras:

As a first activity of Green Guard Society, we started plantation on the divider of a main road in Machilipatnam, which leads to bus station. First we selected this area of town because this is the road has the maximum rush with heavy traffic and pollution.

Selection of plants:

According to local law we are supposed to plant small herbs and shrubs on dividers of main road. So we went to Nursery to select proper plants which meets the requirements of local law and atmospheric conditions too .After lots of queries we selected a plant called Nerium oleander Its scientific position in plant kingdom is

Kingdom
Plantae
Division
Magnoliophyta
Class

We selected this plant because it can tolerate the heat and drought conditions very easily. The cattle on the road won’t eat these plants. And these plants give good flowering thought year.

After some obstacles the plants settled well, now they are flowering continuously.
This is the first and successful activity of Green Guard Society.

2. Plantation in houses:

After successful story of plantation on road we extended our activity into houses.
We took the permission from the house owners and planted some flowering and shady plants before the entrance of the house in that manner the plants can give shade to the house as well as the pedestrians.
As an activity of Green Guard Society we provided the plants and their guards. The house owners providing water for the plants.
