STRENGTHENING GROUNDS FOR THE FUTURE
We all know that trees are essential to our lives, but the importance of preserving and reinvigorating their population has not often been high on our list. As a group, we at Better Brighter have collectively been replanting trees across Malaysia, so that our future generations will not only live in a healthier environment but also have the chance to get to know these magnificent florae.
Comprising of numerous glorious local species of trees, we’ve been planting them by the thousands throughout the years across Malaysia, but our efforts don’t stop there. In the foreseeable future, we plan to increase the number of saplings planted by working with different groups of volunteers.
Thus far, we have worked with volunteers from various universities and schools to encourage a love and interest for these florae, ranging from Jelutong, Meranti Tembaga, Pelawan Putih, Merawan Siput Jantan, Saputangan, Bakau Kurap and many more local florae that used to thrive in the tens of thousands throughout Malaysia, so that they recognise and understand the history of our woods.
Since its conception, our Tree For Tree programme has successfully planted 11,743 trees or 89 breeds across the states with the help of our volunteers and sponsors, and this is only the beginning. In the coming years, we will continue to plant even more trees across Malaysia.
