A TREE-planting activity was held at the Extreme Park in Section 13, Shah Alam last weekend as part of the Shah Alam City Council’s (MBSA) tree-planting programme with the residents’ representative council (MPP).
Shah Alam mayor Datuk Mazalan Md Noor was the guest of honour.
A total of 114 trees were planted, including those from the busida and Brazilian ironwood species to provide more shade for the park.
The council invited students from SK Section 13 and SM Section 11 in Shah Alam as part of its efforts to inculcate a sense of responsibility to care for the environment from young.
Also present were MBSA councillor/ MPP Zone 2 chairman Datuk Abu Bakar Abdul Hamid, as well as representatives from Wet World Water Park Shah Alam and Opcom Holdings Bhd, who sponsored free tickets to Wet World Water Park and t-shirts to the students who participated in the programme.
The council hopes that the programme will help to foster the community’s love for the environment and ensure that the city remains a comfortable place of residence for the present and future generations.
The MBSA is targeting to plant 80,000 trees throughout this year to make Shah Alam a ‘’city within a park’’ with a beautiful and pleasant landscape.
