Here are few lines from the article,

"Forty five-year old G.Mullaivanam's love for trees began when, as a 13-year-old, he would accompany his grandfather on tree planting expeditions across the city.

After many such trips over they years, he realised the need to educate the public about protecting nature. Thus he started a tree bank to supply saplings free of cost.
Concerned about the dwindling numbers of trees in Chennai following rapid urbanisation, this third generation farmer undertook a door-to-door campaign to save trees"

Anyone who is interested in tree plantation and in need of saplings can contact G.Mullaivanam's Tree bank through a message in this number 9789892080 or you can mail your details to treebankofindia@gmail.com

Thanks for reading..
