Rambharat using trees

in flood plan

Agriculture Minister Clarence Rambharat says trees should be seen as an asset to assist us in the hurricane and rainy seasons, as they can help reduce damage, soil erosion and flooding.

Jake C Gosine: Finally, a minister that can comprehend the importance of trees. And it’s good that the real ministries are going to collaborate on the effort.

Rebekah Watson: That’s why we have forestry division. They plant back the forest.

Ramohed Mutt: All the wind breaks in the country are being compromised by squatters. And slash and burn agriculture. Deal with that and you will not have a problem. I guess that might be asking too much. Some people feel entitled to the free land.

Terrance Millan-Ramsumair: Yes. But why are there so many quarrying sites on the northern range?

Sunita K Roodal -Seecharan: Dear Minister, we all know this, but the developers who cutting away the hillside to build luxury homes, tell them that.

Isabella De Barry Lamsee: Plant a few thousand more.

Felix Mendoza: This is always good for the environment. Just be sure to plant our local trees. Another display of positivity on the part of our Government.
