           While preparing to plant trees in a residential colony, highways or anywhere, one should consider three factors for taking a decision. What kind of (species) trees, where to plant and what kind of soil. One should consider the qualities of a tree such as a pattern of branching and its height.
            If it is a school, you need shade-giving trees of moderate height so that children can play under them and not be hurt when they climb on them.
           In residential colonies, trees with thick branches, like Eucalyptus or Ashoka should be chosen to control pollution and trap dust. Similarly, the nature of the soil too should be considered.
            If you are planting trees by the road side, it withstands the topical monsoon and provides shade in summer.
            On highways, the well-known choice would be the native trees like Tamarind or Peepal. They do not need much care. Birds and animals interact more easily with native trees than the exotic ones. Villagers too consider such native trees to be sacred as the abode of gods.

Solution 1

Village life is simple, calm, and serene. It is advantageous as we get to inhale fresh and clean air. Villages have beautiful natural surroundings. People get to lead a healthy lifestyle. The environment is peaceful. On top of everything, people are much more cooperative than their urban counterparts.
However, there are a few disadvantages as well. The infrastructure is poor. Unfortunately, there is neither a mobile network nor road connectivity which hampers new businesses to come up in villages. It also adversely affects the daily lives of people staying there. More than roads there are potholes. Power and water supply are quite irregular. Also, people are not well educated. Due to this, they easily fall prey to blind faith.
