The Sevens Stadium in Dubai, UAE Plants 100 Ghaf Trees

by Madaline Dunn

The Sevens Stadium has launched a tree-planting initiative in collaboration with landscape contractor Berkeley Services. The initiative saw the Stadium plant 100 ghaf trees at the entrance to the grounds, bringing the total number of trees planted by the venue to over 1,000.

Indeed, this is part of a long-term initiative from the Sevens Stadium to plant palm trees, Damas trees, Delonix, Millingtonia and Neem trees to boost biodiversity.

The ghaf tree is the UAE’s national tree, and indigenous to desert environments, it is also drought-resistant and a key tool for enriching soils and battling against desertification.

Mathew Tait, General Manager and Festival Director, Emirates Dubai 7s and Stadium, commented: “On World Environment Day, the Sevens Stadium has taken another step forward in our journey to more conscious operations, by planting 100 ghaf trees on our grounds, bringing our total commitment to 1,000 trees planted to help maintain the local biodiversity.

“As one of the region’s largest and leading sporting and entertainment venues, we are also committed to implementing meaningful initiatives, such as utilising clean energy and water, and responsible waste management. This enables us to bring world-class sporting experiences closer to the community, while operating more sustainably.”
