HAOSSAR’s obsession with trees goes beyond the obvious environmental use of trees. HAOSSAR promotes the setting up of trees as a viable commercial enterprise that will increase availability of natural remedies as well as provide the much needed commercial benefits. Fruit trees and nuts tend to be neglected are very crucial in providing a biodiversity for pollinators like birds, bees as well as other insects and other reptiles and arachnids. HAOSSAR believes that environmental education and re-afforestation mobilization must begin with the youth while in school and that this must combine green enterprise and not empty aesthetic rhetoric.
