National Tree Planting Exercise

The New Juaben North Municipal Assembly launched the Green Ghana Project with the theme “Growing Trees and Greening Cities” on June 11th 2022. The MCE, Hon. Comfort Asante encouraged everyone to take part in the planting of trees. The MCE emphasized on the need to support the government initiative to achieve its aim of planting trees.

The environmental health Unit participated fully in planting more than 730 trees in the municipality.  Trees absorb toxic chemicals and gases through their stomata or pores, effectively filtering these chemicals from the air. Trees also mitigate the greenhouse gas effect by trapping heat, reduce ground-level ozone levels and release life-giving oxygen.

Attached are some photos of health education and tree planting activities within the municipality during the period under review.
