In celebration of the 88th National Day, Riyadh Municipality has launched "Khedmat Watan" campaign, which aims to plant local trees in six different locations in the capital with more than 2000 male and female volunteers.
The event comes in line with the ambitious vision of the Kingdom, which aims to increase the green area within Saudi cities, as the cultivation and planting of trees plays a prominent role in achieving ecological balance, facing desertification and adding beautiful aspect to the city.
Riyadh Municipality has determined sites for volunteers’ assembly and provided them with safe means of transportation to places of cultivation and planting, which were equipped with the necessary equipment under the supervision of a specialized team.
Riyadh Municipality also selected specific types of local trees, which are capable of adapting to capital's climate, and provided advanced irrigation methods that contribute to the rationalization of water consumption.
Riyadh Municipality appreciates people’s keenness, and their great desire and willingness to contribute voluntarily as service to the benevolent country and to celebrate the National Day.
