A tree for each house to welcome National Day
21/11/2012

As many as 100,000 homes in Dubai will be gifted with a sapling each under a new campaign launched by the Dubai Municipality on the occasion of the country’s 41st National Day.

The Dubai Municipality has announced the ‘One Home One Tree’ campaign in response to the ‘Union Tree’ initiative launched by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Director General of Dubai Municipality Hussain Nasser Lootah said the campaign came as part of the municipality’s keenness to promote patriotism and provide opportunities for citizens to express the occasion reflecting the spirit of belonging and loyalty to the homeland.

Noting that the occasion reflects the extent of awareness and sense of responsibility towards the nation and its environment, Lootah said the municipality will distribute a tree for every house of the emirate starting from November 18 until the National Day on December 2.

The Parks and Horticulture Department aims to distribute at least 100,000 saplings through the initiative, the Department’s Director Ahmed AbdulKareem told Khaleej Times on Sunday. “Soon after Shaikh Mohammed announced the Union Tree initiative, our Director-General took the initiative of distributing saplings in all houses in Dubai. We started the distribution on Friday,” he said.

Over the weekend, the official said, the department distributed as many as 20,000 saplings. The distribution was held in Nad Al Hamar park, Al Warqa markets, Khawaneej track,  Al Twar Centre,  Mamzar Park, Al Manar Centre, Jumeirah Park Beach, Union Mall Barsha branch, Jumeirah Grand Mosque, Mankhool Eid Gah and Hatta Centre.
