DEHRADUN: On the occasion of World Environment Day, Uttarakhand Governor K K Paul today asked people to save trees and leave them as a valuable heritage for posterity.

"Planting trees and looking after them should be a priority in our lives. We should resolve today, on the occasion of World Environment Day, to save trees.

"Saving the environment should be a part and parcel of our day-to-day lives. If this does not happen, we will lose our natural surroundings," he said.

Describing trees as the basis of human existence, he said that the best way to express gratitude towards nature was to carry on with Indian traditions like worshipping trees and other forms of nature.

The Governor also planted a camphor sapling at Raj Bhawan to mark the occasion.
