Forests conservation key to maintain ecosystem: Masood

Saying that AJK is famous for its beautiful green forests and moderate climate, the president emphasised, “We will have to protect our forests in order to keep our region attractive and captivating to promote tourism and save the future of coming generations by maintaining the ecological balance.”

Khan highlighted that forests are not only important to maintain the climate and natural environment, they are also a major source of abundant water resources that AJK has. “The survival and sustainability of our water reservoirs are directly linked to the forests of the region,” he added.

“Instead of relying on forest wood for cooking and heating, we need to focus on alternative sources of fuel, and for this purpose, the forest department, government agencies, and social organizations can guide and help the people,” he said.
