Tree planting is an important activity which provide different resouces in terms of tangible resources and those which we can not touch. Trees provide shade, attract rainfall, act as carbon sequenstration and it also act as a decoration of the areas, to list but a few. When people plant trees they get fuelwood (charcoal and firewood), building materials, fruits, fodder for their animals, to mention a few. In other circumstances tree planting help to address the problem of deforestation. For the case of Dar es Salaam there is a plan arranged by municipalities to plant trees along the roads including Morogoro Road, Mandela road etc. I appreciate this plan. The problem with these plans is that no programme of irrigating tree or wetting them. After trees/flowers are planted that is the end of the activity. What is expected is rain to wet the trees. If it does not rain that is the end of trees. My concern here is that, who is to blame? What should be done to address this problem? How to make tree planting sustainable program for the city of Dar es Salaam?
