If you have little land @ home or shared land among planned neighborhood, one tree I suggest for plantation if Nimbu (Lemon) tree. It is truly a boon for not only its fruits but also for its presence in the garden. It will keep certain types of insects and bacteria away from your local environment. Odor of lemon keeps mosquito at bay.
 
Benefits of lemons:

Lime has been found to enhance the disinfection of water, by both killing norovirus as well as Escherichia coli.[3] Lime has also been found to kill the cholera pathogen, which is believed to affect 3–5 million people and causes 100,000–130,000 deaths a year as of 2010.[4]

Besides, lemon helps a lot in dental care, skin care and Gut care (Pickles).
