UAE: 25 seedlings of rare tree that can live for 100 years planted

The Environment Agency Abu Dhabi has planted 25 seedlings of a rare tree that can live for a century.

The sarh tree seedlings were planted in Jebel Hafeet’s National Park in an effort to preserve local plant species and enhance biodiversity in the emirate.

The sarh (Maerua crassifolia) is the first tree of its kind to be identified in the emirate. Previously, the species had been seen only in Ras Al Khaimah.
