Government Donates 250,000 Tree seedlings to Bulambuli

The government under ministry of water and environment has donated 250,000 tree seedlings of different species to Bulambuli district.

According to Innocent Wandabwa the Bulambuli district environmental officer, they are going to plant these seedlings in sub-counties of Bulago, Sisiyi and Nabiwutulu neighbouring the Mt Elgon national park.

Wandabwa also says that the donation follows the recent mudslide which hit Bulago Sub County last month killing one's person, five injured 49 displaced and crops destroyed.

He adds that mudslide which has been hitting Bugisu sub-region has been led by deforestation and poor farming methods.

However, he also says that they are going to plant the trees in people’s gardens such that they can hold soils to avoid future mudslide and erosion.
