The AfriForum branch in Sasolburg planted 35 trees alongside the R59 in Sasolburg as part of the civil rights organisation’s arbour month.
 
“Trees do not only play a significant role where the environment is concerned but will also be used to promote safety. Together with the repair of a broken fence, the trees were planted alongside the R59 with the purpose of preventing stolen vehicles from taking shortcuts out of the town and therefore having to follow main routes that are equipped with cameras,” says Stephen Nel, AfriForum’s District Coordinator for the central region.
 
AfriForum annually focuses on a tree species that is commonly found as well as a rare tree species. The commonly found tree for 2018 is the real yellowwood (Podocarpus latifolius), while the rare tree is the shepherd’s tree (Boscia albitrunca). AfriForum encourages towns to plant indigenous trees that do well in their areas.
 
“The Sasolburg branch takes part in AfriForum’s arbour project every year, because we believe that actions such as these make a positive contribution to nature and creates hope for our community,” says Izak Lessing, Chairperson of AfriForum’s Sasolburg branch.
 
The branch encourages the community to take part in this campaign and to become a part of a better and greener future.
