What is the importance of planting trees?

According to Bhavishya Purana, there is a lot of punya to be earned by planting trees.

Trees are living beings that always provide for others and never expect anything in return.

They derive water and nutrients from natural resources.

Trees provide shade, fruits, flowers, medicines, fresh air, timber, a  living place for birds, and a lot more.

They satisfy bees by giving them honey.

They satisfy men, birds, animals, and insects by giving them fruits.

They satisfy Gods by giving them fruits, flowers, and tender leaves for worship.

They cure diseases with the help of their roots, skin, and leaves.

Their shade is such a big relief on a hot day.

They absorb the hot sun rays themselves and protect those below them.

Planting a tree is like giving birth to a great dharmatma.

 

You should plant trees selflessly for the benefit of the public at large.

Purana says it is better to plant a single tree than to have a number of thankless and unrighteous sons.

Even if your descendants do not perform shraadha for you, the gratitude of those who benefit from the trees you have planted will be there with you for generations to come.

 

The clans of those who plant trees and protect trees progress.

Planting and protecting trees earn the punya of chanting Gayatri Mantra daily, performing danam daily, and performing agnihotra daily.

In a lifetime, you should plant at least one each of these trees - Peepal, Banyan, Neem, Vilwa, Amla, and Kaith (Feronia limonia).

In a lifetime, you should plant at least 5 Mango trees and 10 Tamarind trees.

You will then never have to see even the entrance of Naraka.

Who defeated Jarasandha?

Bhima defeated Jarasandha under the guidance of Krishna. Bhima, Arjuna, and Krishna visited Jarasandha's capital in disguise. They challenged Jarasandha to wrestle and Jarasandha agreed to fight with Bhima. Even after 14 days, Jarasandha could not be defeated. Then Krishna signaled to Bhima that he should tear Jarasandha's body vertically into two and throw them in opposite directions. That was the only way to kill Jarasandha.
