Mankranso Forestry Division distributes 240k seedlings on Green Ghana’s Day 

The Mankranso Forest District Division distributed about 240,000 seedlings towards Green Ghana Day.

Mr. Ishmael Boakye Agyemang, the District Manager, stated that the district is expected to plant 240,000 seedlings, out of the 10 million target for the year, across the country.

Speaking at Onyina Nufu, near Kunsu, in the Ahafo Ano South West District, he said the Mankranso Forest District has already distributed 258,950 seedlings with over 150,000 already planted.

He entreated those who collected the seedlings to make sure they plant them, instead of discarding them.

According to him, the only obstacle hindering the exercise is the activities of illegal miners in the forest and urged all stakeholders and the citizenry to contribute in the fight against the canker.

He also cautioned unscrupulous individuals who indulge in illegal felling of trees to desist from the practice.

Nana Professor Oheneba Boachie-Adjei Woahene II, Otumfuo’s Hiahene, who led the campaign on behalf of the Asantehene, urged Ghanaians to make it a priority to fight against the activities that destroy our forest and the water bodies.

He reiterated the important role forest and water bodies play in human lives, noting that it is very unfortunate that both the forest and water bodies keep losing their value, because of human activities.

He expressed worry over how people intentionally destroy our forest cover, especially in the Ashanti region, and urged Ghanaians to resist the destruction of our forest and water bodies.

According to him, as human beings, we would definitely use trees, but must be replaced and nurtured, hence the need for all people to get involved when it comes to the Green Ghana project to plant more trees to replace the lost forest cover.
