Donate a Tree

At Nelda we don’t just plant trees, we nurture them as well. Our volunteers are our strength when it comes to planting & nurturing saplings. We understand it is not possible for everyone to physically be a part of the plantation drive even though you wish to, so Nelda made it easy for you – just donate a tree & volunteers at Nelda will plant it for you!

Donate a Tree: When you visit Nelda’s website, you get the opportunity to donate a tree. According to your wish, choose the features that you like & make the donation online. Our team will follow up with you to confirm.

We Plant It: After we buy saplings on your behalf, our volunteers at Nelda plant them for you.

We Take Care of It: We don’t stop after planting the tree, we are dedicated to making it self-sustaining & until then, Nelda takes the responsibility to care of them.

Help Nelda Plant More Trees:

Why is it important to plant trees?

When the rest of the world is busy cutting trees & growing forests of metals & cement, Nelda aims to give back what we are taking from mother nature. When you become a part of this noble cause, you contribute toward conserving nature. Trees give the life-sustaining element to humans, oxygen & create a healthy atmosphere for life to prosper. They also help to keep the air clean and cool down the temperature. With many more such benefits to humans & the earth, trees have a crucial role in each aspect.

What we do today is going to decide what our future generations will experience, so it is us who are going to decide what kind of environment we wish to pass on. Nelda believes small contributions towards tree plantation can make a big change.

Call our team today to take the first step towards making this world a better place & to see a better, greener & cleaner future. Donate a tree with Nelda!

A small poem on trees, conveying the message what the give to the environment.

हिरवे हिरवे झाड टुमदार

पक्ष्यांचा थवा शानदार

हिरवे झाड आनंदे डोलते

माझ्याशी खेळायला या म्हणते

हिरव्या हिरव्या झाडाची सावली दाट

हिरव्या रंगांना फुलांची साद

हिरव्या झाडावर सुगरणीचा खोपा

खोप्यातल्या पिल्लांना हवेचा झोका

रसाळ फळे, फुले नि पाने

झाड देते हजार हाताने

जीवन मित्र म्हणतात ज्याला

कशाला घालायचा त्यावर घाला?

झाडे फुलवतात जीवन गाणे

तेच ‘आपुले सोयरे’ तुका ही म्हणे!

– पद्माकर भावे

फळे, फुले, पाने
देती आम्हां वृक्ष
या वृक्षांशिवाय
जीवन हे रूक्ष.

पाऊस पडतो
झाडांमुळे फक्त
वृक्ष तोडण्याची
बंदी करू सक्त

वृक्ष सदा देई
घनदाट छाया
सर्व झाडांवर
चला करू माया

प्राणवायू शुद्ध
मिळतो जगाला
थोरवी वृक्षांची
सांगूया जनाला

वृक्ष थांबविती
जमीनीची धूप
साऱ्यांनी मिळून
झाडे लावू खूप

थोरवी झाडांची
गाते रोज ‘उमा’
वृक्ष देवराया
चुकीला दे क्षमा.

– Uma Patil

Planting trees is just a small step. Nurturing and conserving them is the difficult part – kudos to Nelda and its dedicated team Shubham, Jeet and others for sweating out each Sunday. Happy to play a small role in their venture this Sunday.
