As a tribute to His Majesty’s concerns and contributions towards the preservation of our natural environment, June 2nd has been marked as Social Forestry Day in coinciding with Coronation Day of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo.

 The Day was celebrated with the plantation around the new Dzongkhag Office Surrounding, blessed with the gloomy weather comforting the plantation with the theme “Plant trees for Green Bhutan”. As usual, Social Forestry Day fills with great optimism and aspiration to plant more trees in making the earth a better place to live-in. The Chief Guest for the day was Chief Planning Officer of Wangdue Dzongkhag in presence of Sector Heads and other officials. The day was marked with the Dzongkahg Forestry Officer reading out the Message of His Excellency Lyonpo Yeshi Dorji followed by the Chief Guest expressing few quotes on the importance of the day and conveyed the message that the “forest play a integral part for the sustenance of all living beings”.

 The Dzongkhag Forestry Nursery also supplied numerous seedlings to Schools, Regional Officesand private individuals to mark the day and hence we hope and pray that the day would inspire every individual to love the Mother Nature and show commitment in protecting it. We the Dzongkhag Forestry Sector would like to thank each and every staff of Wangdue Dzongkhag for making the social forestry program successful.

Once more, we the people of Sha-DaGay would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and pray for the long life of His Majesty, the Fourth Druk Gyalpo.
