CommuniTree, based out of Chennai created a man-made forest on government land on an open state reserve after having an agreement between the government officials. Hafiz Khan said, “Till now, CommuniTree has planted trees and created man-made forests at around 110 acres of land at 28 locations in Chennai and Bangalore. Other peoples also became part of it as a volunteer to take care of the plants and trees and keep the target of at least conserving 80%-90% of plants out of the entire plant and saplings sown.” Hafiz said, “Humans are enemies of nature, on a path from where the human walks the plants never grow on that path again. At CommuniTree we organize vast camps to develop man-made forests. My organization has come forward to raise funds. The two major companies are Hero Motor Corp and The Times of India. There are many more such companies who also join their hands. With their help and support, CommuniTree has planted 5.6 lakh trees. The organization also creates butterfly parks in residential societies. It performs some activities at schools such as growing food forests with children and educating them about the benefits of trees and how to take care of them.” CommuniTree founded by Hafiz Khan in 2018 has so far planted numerous trees and created man-made forests at around 110 acres of land at 28 locations in Chennai and Bengaluru. Starting with a vision of saving the environment by building a better and greener tomorrow by planting saplings, this organization has created man-made forests and helps conserve the environment by increasing the green cover.
