During a visit to Dar Al Ittihad in Dubai where he planted the ‘Union Tree”, along with a group of UAE National children, Sheikh Mohammed said: “God Almighty has blessed us with plenty of gifts thanks to the “Union Tree” which has united all parts of the homeland under its umbrella and which became a vivid witness for all generations of all of the achievements in the country in every field. Today, our duty is to build our country with determination and hard work.” ”I hope that this event of planting a tree with the name “The Union Tree” will prompt you to take care of and preserve it and will also educate our generation to keep our union intact,” Sheikh Mohammed added.

He urged citizens to share with him on Twitter pictures of “The Union Tree.” Other trees will be planted in homes and in government and private facilities.
