KUWAIT CITY, Aug 28: The Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fisheries Resources (PAAAFR) revealed about 700 palm trees died along the highways last July due to lack of water which was a result of expiry of the contract for watering and caring for them following which environmental activists and volunteer teams launched an initiative last May under the title ‘For a more beautiful Kuwait’, with the aim of preserving the vegetation cover and beautifying the areas of the country with green trees, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The activists stressed on the need to intensify greening campaigns and unite the efforts of all parties, to improve the aesthetic shape of the country’s regions, give civilized touches to streets and roads, and expedite the implementation of tree-planting projects to confront pollution on the one hand, and achieve the vision required to beautify the face of Kuwait and reduce arid desertification of areas on the other hand.

In light of the length of the documentary cycle between government agencies and institutions, and the waiting for approvals to fl oat tenders, informed sources at the PAAAFR confirmed that its teams monitored during the month of July the death of about 700 palm trees.
