If you live along the coast, almonds, sea grapes and coconut trees are ideal and natural choices for protecting communities from adverse weather conditions. Hence, the Division of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment (DIQE) and its partners, Environmental Research Institute Charlotteville (ERIC) and Environment Tobago commissioned the planting of 2,500 native tree along north eastern communities in Tobago this November. Lambeau’s coastline is also earmarked for greening.

Last Thursday, Environment Secretary Kwesi Des Vignes joined residents of the village of Parlatuvier, representatives of ERIC and the Tobago Tourism Agency Ltd for an evening of sowing. The team planted 167 trees in Parlatuvier; a total 1,165 trees will meet the soil by this weekend with a further 1,335 to be planted in June 2020 during the rainy season.

The division thanked the children, parents, fishermen and other residents of Parlatuvier for their participation.
