As we are all aware that India has a dwindling forest cover especially in Punjab, therefore in order to have mass public participation in tree planting and caring round the year and not only around Vana Maha Utsav, all persons should be encouraged to plant trees to get the following direct and indirect benefits:

–         To Keep alive  the memory of their departed parents or dear ones they are encouraged to plant a tree and care for it till it needs care and beyond.

–         Helping the country in reforestation and increasing the dwindling green cover.

–         With increasing stress at work and living environments, a lot of people are getting depressed, this will provide a place to find peace to remember the dear departed ones, Go and de-stress amongst nature.

–         As a contribution to increase oxygen levels which are depleting every second due to increasing air pollution levels.

–         These trees will compensate for the wood which was used to cremate the departed dear and help meet the requirements of cremation wood for others in future as and when these trees outlive their life and die.


As majority of India lives in 50 or 100 sq yard houses, very few will have land to plant these memory trees or yaddan de buttey on their own land.

Therefore for those who don’t have land the government through Agencies like Municipal Corporation (Parks and gardens, Road Side Trees), public works department, Irrigation, NHAI and Forest should provide land in each city and village to plant for these Memorial Forests. This will be a win-win situation for the public, government, environment, health, mental health and reforest to regain depleting green cover of India.
