Ghana is blessed with numerous natural resources of all kinds; flora and fauna inclusive. These natural resources are mainly found in the forest belt of the African continent where trees flourish. This consequently should have led to greener cities and town in Ghana but that is not the reality.
The nature of our cities is disappointing considering the country’s geographical location. Most often, I am disappointed when I visit our major cities. Trees have been chopped down to make way for residential and commercial activities with little or nothing done to remedy the situation forgetting that, “if the last tree dies, the last man goes with it.” It is a common sight in Ghana’s major cities, to behold streak of buildings with only a few trees scattered here and there.
