Binh Thuan (VNA) – More than 1,000 sao den trees (Hopea odorata), a rare species, have been planted on two hectares in Ta Cu Nature Reserve in central coastal Binh Thuan province’s Ham Thuan Nam district.

The provincial committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCM CYU) organised the tree planting event in coordination with Viet Vision and Menard companies, aiming to prevent soil erosion and restore primitive forests, protect the environment, and respond to climate change.

As many as 4,000 more sao den trees will be planted in May this year, according to the provincial HCM CYU committee. The activity not only expands green coverage across abandoned land but also contributes to enhancing awareness of local youth union members and the community about the importance of forest, thereby mobilising joint efforts to care for forest and environment protection.

The effort is part of the Vietnam Forest community project which was initiated in 2019 aiming at creating a positive impact on the community, helping to spread the love for nature. The project has been carried out in a number of localities including Lam Dong, Da Nang and Ha Giang provinces./.
