The King Salman “Ma’aden” has begun planting 100,000 trees in collaboration with the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve Development Authority. This initiative is part of Ma’aden’s commitment to social responsibility and the environment, and it will help the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve Development Authority expand its green space and meet its sustainable environmental goals.

In the Tabuk area, in the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve, agricultural work has started and will continue through the middle of this month in Wadi Al-Qulayba and Wadi Fajr.

At the beginning of the second phase, both male and female volunteers from the Tabuk region’s community as well as representatives of other organisations will take part.

The project is in line with the Green Saudi and Green Middle East initiatives. They seek to beautify the reserve, increase afforestation, develop natural vegetation cover, and draw tourists and eco-tourists. They also seek to ensure the sustainability of the right environment for living organisms in order to protect them from extinction.

It is noteworthy that the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve Development Authority and Maaden have reached an agreement on a memorandum of understanding that will improve cooperation in joint actions within the reserve,

joint and mutual work between the two parties on mining business policies and their impact on the environment, the organization of events of shared interest, and the field of researching the effects of mining within the scope of the reserve.

Additionally, this year saw the launch of 14 voluntary initiatives by the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve Development Authority, including campaigns to expand the green space through the planting of saplings, dispersing seeds, promoting environmental sanitation, and running awareness campaigns. 100 thousand seedlings were grown from throughout the year by volunteers, green organisations, and in collaboration with the neighbourhood.

With a surface area of more than 130,000 square kilometres, the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Royal Reserve is the biggest in the Middle East. It has locations with notable environmental qualities including Hurra Al-Hurra and Al-Tubaiq, as well as artefacts from Jubbah that date back more than 8,000 years.
