Trees are considered deities in Hindu culture. In the past man knew the significance of trees. Actually the natural resources that we use in our daily lives need decades to form. Modernization is harming nature at the same pace. Considering nature as a part of our lives, KUTUMB has brought about this AFFORESTATION PROGRAMME. Numerous varieties of trees have been planted here, so that birds can build nests and eat fruits; butterflies may have flowers to flit about in, we can get clean pure air and also stop soil erosion.

These trees absorb moisture from the air and cool it down. Wasteful flow of water is reduced and ground water level is increased. One always feels cheerful and tranquil in the proximity of trees. If we love and nurture trees, they will love us back and continue to shower their bounties on us. So, roam around these woods and enjoy nature to your heart’s content.
