Yakubu Ayinga Abagri, the Binduri District Chief Executive (DCE), said it was part of efforts to protect buildings from the ravages of rain and wind storms which has become an annual occurrence during an interview with ghanadistricts.com.
He said if the communities are well protected from storms, the assembly would be able to save funds and use them for development projects that would benefit the people.
Mr. Abagri has urged the pupils to take good care of the trees so that they would enjoy the fruits and the shade they provide.
He commended the Ministry of Agriculture for the seedlings and urged the Officer in charge of the district to monitor the planting and growth of the trees.
Mr Louis Badoor, a field officer of the District said planting trees would support the organization to manage disaster in the district and help improve the environment.
