  • Tree naming at public campuses

    TIES has initiated another novel project to place name boards on trees of public campuses of Kerala aiming at creating awareness among public on the importance of natural diversity and to create interest in nature conservation projects. As a pilot programme, all the 120 trees in the civil station campus in Kottayam were tagged with a permanent board showing their common name, scientific name and Malayalam name. This initiative has also been carried out in other locations such as St. Mary’s Cathedral, Manarcad where 18 trees were named, Medical College Hospital, Kottayam, where 330 trees were named, Mahatma Gandhi University Campus, where 976 varieties of trees were named and Marine Drive, Cochin where all the trees were named.
