Tree Plantation

ZBS faculty, staff, students, friends, supporters, guest teachers, church families and Sunday school children took part in tree plantation at the 7.5 acres new campus in February and March 2018 (spring time). We would like to turn the campus grounds into “A green Campus”. Trees were donated by students, staff, faculty and friends in thanksgiving and memory of their loved ones.

In the Spring plantation, a total of 304 trees were planted which included Pine, Lemon, Guava, Olive, Sukhchain (Pongamia Pinnata), Fig, Silver Oak and the famous tree of Kashmir valley, named “Chinar” in Urdu, also known as Oriental Plane (Plantanus Orientalis), Juniper Communis, Ligustrum. This tree looks like a maple tree. Chinar trees will provide shade in hot summer to the main building and central play/jogging area.

We are thankful to all participants for their concern for creation and for donating trees.

There are about 30 grown trees including Ber (Indian Jujube, Zizyphus Mauritiana Lam), Sheesham (Sisso), Kikar (Acacia Nilotica), and Dharek (Melia Azedarach), Bougainvillea Glabra. These trees are already giving a good look.

Note: Juniperus Excelsa is the famous tree of UNESCO biosphere reserve of Ziarat, Baluchistan. This is the second largest forest of this kind after California’s Juniper forest. The trees planted at ZBS campus are a smaller variety (Communis) which is very suitable for driveways.

The third phase of plantation will be conducted in the Monsoon season in August. ZBS graduates have promised to donate and plant 200 trees in the third phase of the year 2018. We plan to plant Sheesham known Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia Sisso) and Neem Tree (Azadirachta Indica).

The youngest tree planter was 11 months old Amaziah Solomon Gill, son of ZBS board treasurer and the senior most was Dr. David G Peterson, guest teacher for M.Th class, who planted Chinar tree.
