वृक्ष प्रतिष्ठा

This is finest example of how well we used to take care of trees and plants. They were setup in community as living beings.

आचार्ये द्विगुणं दद्यात्पूर्ववन्मण्डपादिकम् ।७०.००८
पापनाशः परा सिद्धिर्वृक्षारामप्रतिष्ठया ॥७०.००८

Establishing trees and sacred groves can wipe out one’s sins and receives highest merits!

With the प्राण प्रतिष्ठा, life infusion, trees can last hundreds of years, but without it? Not our responsibility. Hence, it was compulsory to perform वृक्ष प्रतिष्ठा!

You believe it or not, trees can survive for long if they are infused by Prana of worshipers. This infusion of Prana, via trees, then spread to community for their well-being.

[Old note on same subject]

Planting tree is very sensitive activity. Equivalent to raising children.
No parents wish their children to die prematurely or live painful suffering life.
For the well-being of the tree-life, try to follow during plantation:

• Worship Varuna, Vishnu and Parjanya for the well being of the plant before planting it.
• Worship sapling or seed itself before planting it.
• Make oneself mentally pure and physically clean before starting planting activity.
• Planting in Uttara, Rohini, Anuradha, Chirta, Mrigsira, Ravati, Mula, Vishakha, Tishya, Sravan, Aswini and hasta Nakshatra influences a tree and helps it flourish at best potential.

Reference: Brihat Samhita and Agni puran

Educate children, friends and relatives involved in tree-planting and farming.
