Abu Dhabi City Municipality Plants 3,000 Ghaf Tree Seedlings

by Madaline Dunn

Abu Dhabi City Municipality has collaborated with Al Shahama Municipality Center, Emirates Environmental Group, and Ma’an Authority of Social Contribution to plant 3,000 local Ghaf tree seedlings in various areas. 

It was shared that the project was completed in three phases, each planting 1,000 Ghaf trees, first in the Al Samhah area, then in Rawdat Al Riff – Al Shahama Bypass Road, and finally on the Al Shahama Bypass Road.

The municipality shared that the planting of 3,000 Ghaf tree seedlings is part of broader efforts to promote environmental development and bolster greenery.

The Ghaf is the national tree of the UAE and is drought-tolerant, playing a key role in the survival of animal and plant species. 

In Abu Dhabi, another project between the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) and health-tech firm M42, completed in January, worked on Ghaf tree genome mapping.

The main goal of the project, according to Ahmed Al Hashmi, Executive Director of the Terrestrial and Marine Biodiversity Sector at EAD, was to gain a better understanding of the Ghaf tree in order to develop policies and a conservation framework to ensure the sustainability of the species.
