CNR, Lobesa: College of Natural Resources in Lobesa, on this week, in commemoration of 59th birth anniversary of His Majesty the fourth Druk Gyalpo, launched its journal called Bhutan Journal of Natural Resources and Development (BJNRD), to provide a forum for home academician and scholars to publish their works.
11 November, CNR, Lobesa: If Bhutan today is still among the top biological hotspots in the world, if major chunk of our land is still under forest cover, it’s all because of the farsighted vision of His Majesty the fourth Druk Gyalpo. Hence, College of Natural Resources in Lobesa developed and established an Arboretum, a campus floristic garden, which is a befitting symbol of tribute to His Majesty’s 60th birth anniversary on 11 November this year.
The faculty members, in-service degree and diploma forestry students of the college, over a period of last three months, conceived and executed the Arboretum where, within the premises of the college, an area was delineated and planted with different species of plants. Some 230 seedlings consisting of 20 tree species from Bhutan’s native broadleaved forests were planted within the area of 3911 sq.m of land. The species planted includes Cassia spp., Quercus spp., Sisoo, Terminalia belerica, Mesus ferres, Gulmohar, Dendrocalamus spp, Ficus bengalensis etc. In addition, two gazebos as resting and contemplating stop points were constructed connected by the nature trail snaking within the Arboretum.
