Bali plant ceremonial trees

The provincial government is intensifying the planting of a variety of types of trees to meet the demand for rituals, as well as supporting environmental conservation.

As many as 12,300 trees that are used as part of Hindu rituals have been planted in 2011. The planting of trees that support Hindu rituals is supported by Rp 460 million in funding from the regional budget. The re-greening program serves a dual purpose and embraces the community, interfaith leaders and agencies under the provincial government.

The program and forest re-greening activities are aimed at restoring the land to its full potential, while applying the concept of tri hita karana, the harmonious relationship between human beings, man and the environment and man and God.
