The air, water, soil and climate of the Asansol region are most suitable for the growth of these native species, and hence their survival rate is quite high. In turn, these support the birds, insects and animals of this ecosystem. These species also are most effective in fighting air pollution. The highlight of the drive was the mass tree plantation at Dhomani Railway Colony, Asansol, & where over 17 trees were planted by Scouts, Guides, they showed great enthusiasm in planting these trees which they knew would recharge ground water, prevent soil erosion and prevent siltation of their river.
