Questions 26 - 3L a,re base,d on tlte t'oLloruing possage.. :

1 lt was a delightful scene for many visitors, young and old; at Kampur-rg f)ekPermai, Selangor, on 18 August 2003. Armed with 20 000 young trees, these Malaysianvolunteers were united by a t,ask r.vhich rvas to plant trees on six hectares of land.

2 Kampung Dek Permai was chosen as its environment had been damaged as aresult of indiscriminate logging. The aim of this activity was to protect the ecosystemand, at the same time, allow future generations to live in a healthy environment. Asthis activity involved teamwork, it became a symbol of friendship and helped to createawareness of the importance of protecting the environment. The organisers hoped thatwhat the volunteers were going to do would set an example for others.

3 The happy participants, made up of 900 residents of Kampung Dek Permai and600 schoolchildren and teachers. cheerfuily rolled up their sleeves and worked together.Those who attended included the Deputy Minister of Agriculture and the headman ofKampung Dek Permai, who spoke briefly at the opening ceremony.

4 Before planting the trees, the partici.pants were briefecl by Ayub Musa from theDepartment of Agriculture, who had the crowd in stitches with his step-by-step guideto tree-planting. The talk was informative as Ayub related in detaii how a tree isplanted.

5 If you want to plant a tree, according to Ayub, you will need to gather all the thingsyou require: a young tree in a plastic bag, a large water container, a trowel, gardenscissors and some mulch, which is a mass of dead leaves and bark, spread arounda plant for protection or to enrich the soil. Ayub mentioned that the next step is tohandle the young tree with tender, loving care so that it can grow healthily. "Alwayshold the plant at the bottom, and never hold it by the stem. You would never dreamof carrying a baby that way! Feel free to stroke the plant gently as you handle it - itis a living bhing that needs affection too!" he added jokingly.

6 "Next, while holding the young tree in the plastic bag, soak the entire plastic bagin a large container of water. Keep it under water and check that all the air bubblesare gone. Then use a trowel to dig a hole where you want the young tree to grow.Ensure that the hole is at the right depth to match the height of the plastic bag. Itmust not be too deep or too shallow. This is very important. Carry the soaked youngtree over to the hole. You are now at a very important stage of the process. Now cutthrough the plastic bag, making sure that the roots are not damaged. This may causethe plant to die."

7 The next step, according to Ayub, is to place the young tree into the hole that hasbeen prepared. "Remove the plastic bag completely. lf the soil surrounding the rootsbreaks off while you are removing the plastic bag, do not panic! Just collect it andplace it in the hole as neatly as possible," he said" "Do not forget to cover the holewith the soil that you have removed earlier, using the trowel or your hands. Press thesoil down firmly, but not too hard or too lightly, as that may cause the plant to haveproblems in growing." Ayub added that the last step is to place wet mulch around theyoung tree" The mulch wil,l provide protection as well as nutrients for the roots. "It









Page 9: SPM 2007 BI K1 K2

must be wet and hold ennugh rvater for the plant to grorv heaithily over the next fewmonths," Ayub emphasised.

B When the talk was over, the participanLs got down to work. A{'ter a tiring twohours, the whoie area was covered with young plants. By the end of the tree'planting 45

" activity, it was clear from the smiles ail around that something lasting had been sownin their hearts. It was the seed of a speciai friendship, very much like the young treesin the fertile ground of Kampung Dek Permai.
