Environment

At a time when deforestation has become a serious problem, Podi Hamuduruwo has taken the initiative in a massive reforestation project. A ‘Tree Bank’ with a wide variety including teak, mahogany, jak and herbal plants has been established in a 740-acre property at Urumutta Estate, Akuressa. Plants from these nurseries are regularly distributed among those interested.

A block of land with rare species of trees adorns the site of the rest rooms at Kataragama.
