It is heartening to see new palm trees being planted on Fujairah’s Al Faseel Road, on the stretch that runs parallel with the beach, between the Hilton Hotel and the Beach Motel.
This continues the Fujairah Municipality’s tree planting programme and the replacement in many parts of the concrete and pavers with grass and gardens.
The Going Green project is most apparent along the Fujairah waterfront but trees are still needed between the Hilton and the Marine Club to provide adequate natural shelter and to get rid of the plastic-looking trees that look like they were commissioned when Sheikh Mohammad bin Hamad was Ruler of Fujairah.
The provision of shelter is a necessity along the beach areas in Fujairah’s extreme heat but to see life, colour and beauty adds to the joy of residents and travelers and is beneficial to the environment.
