Farmers in Tirunelveli Advise Planting Trees Along These Dams’ Banks To Prevent Flooding

<p>With the start of the Northeast monsoon, farmers in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, began cultivating during the Bisan season, causing the Papanasam, Manimuthar, and Servalar Dams to overflow. The government is thinking about releasing water for farming. Naturalists suggest that in order to strengthen the banks of the dams, trees should be planted nearby since their roots have the capacity to hold water underneath. This may increase rainfall, keep riverbanks from flooding, and support biodiversity.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-282845″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-exam-schedule-for-the-december-session-of-ugc-net-2023-is-available-at-nta-ac-in-c.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com exam schedule for the december session of ugc net 2023 is available at nta ac in c” width=”1434″ height=”955″ title=”Farmers in Tirunelveli Advise Planting Trees Along These Dams' Banks To Prevent Flooding 6″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-exam-schedule-for-the-december-session-of-ugc-net-2023-is-available-at-nta-ac-in-c.jpg 620w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-exam-schedule-for-the-december-session-of-ugc-net-2023-is-available-at-nta-ac-in-c-150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1434px) 100vw, 1434px” /></p>
<p>Since native trees are more adapted to the natural climate, rainfall patterns, and features of the soil, the farmers want to plant them in riverine regions. By directing water underground via their roots and so managing the groundwater level, native trees are essential in mitigating floods. By absorbing extra groundwater and releasing it as water vapor via their leaves, these trees support a healthy ecology.</p>
<p>It is not a good idea to transplant trees from their natural habitats to other places because seedlings in areas with high rainfall and waterlogging may rot. Supporters contend that trees’ steam emissions contribute to environmental cooling and precipitation.</p>
<p>The forest department reports that the Tamil Nadu government has already planted seven crore seedlings and is aggressively striving to increase the state’s forest cover from 23.69 percent to 33 percent. Supriya Sahu, the secretary of the Forest Department, has proposed the Green Tamil Nadu Mission for 2023–2024 which calls for the establishment of 1,931 nurseries. Planting native plants including Syzygium, Ailanthus, Pongamia, Jackfruit, Palmyra, Ficus, Tamarind, Red Sanders, Sandalwood, and Melia Dubia is the main goal of the effort.</p>
<p>The Green Tamil Nadu Mission is moving on at a rapid pace; in the Namakkal area alone, 11 nurseries are generating 7 lakh native seedlings for broad plantations. Sahu said the objective is creating plenty of green employment, especially for women in rural areas, in addition to increasing the amount of green cover. By establishing connections between neighboring schools and forest nurseries, the forest department actively involves schoolchildren in the environment, promoting environmental awareness and engagement from an early age.</p>
