The Banyan Tree (Ficus benghalensis)
A home to a variety of birds and insects, almost all of the banyan trees we see today were planted decades ago. Sadly, due to its size and the space needed, we are losing this beautiful and gigantic tree one by one. If the trend continues, 50 years from now, we won't even have a single banyan tree to show to our grandchildren.
In this regard, Project Banyan requires your help to grow and maintain these giants in our country. Planting and nurturing a small sapling is a simple way to say "I CARE". To say I care for myself, my community, my nation, and my environment.
Join OSAI and be part of Project Banyan. It will transform the way our dear city looks. It will change the way our children breathe and play. The chirps of birds that are now lost will then return. One tree at a time from each of us can sure make this place more greener and healthier.
Your help will be diverted to growing saplings, buying tree guards, and maintanence. Project Banyan requests you to join hands with us in this noble venture to bring back the trees and birds.
The Project Banyan was launched at Stanes Hr. Sec. School on 10.06.2009. The first banyan sapling was planted by Conservator of Forests, Coimbatore Circle, R. Kannan, I.F.S.
