Sometimes we over worry over small matters but our concerns re-the environment should never be underestimated.

As trees breathe in polluted air, a new life is just beginning. Air quality in the vicinity of our school is negatively affected by heavy traffic, so the need to plant more trees is highly recommended. In fact, at our school, ERA (Environment and Resources Authority) officials have recently installed apparatus to monitor levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) mostly produced by motor vehicles. Our school is participating in the European-wide project entitled Fair with Air at School – Citizen Science Project which involves the monitoring of air quality by students.

Whilst enjoying some free time at Joanne Gardens-Tarxien, I have come across this tree with a broken branch caused by the gale force winds which hit Malta last February. Fortunately, this tree survived and may the authorities ensure that more trees are planted around the island to make Malta greener and less polluted.

Should we rest our minds when seeing this sight in a public garden? May the authorities ensure that for every fallen tree, new trees are planted.
