Here is what our Holy Prophet (sa) said about planting trees:
“If a Muslim plants a tree or grow grains and a bird, a person or an animal eats from it will be counted as a charity for him.”
(Bukhara, "al-Khars ve'l-Muzara", Muslim, "Musakaat", H. No: 12).
“If any of you have a date sapling on the doomsday he should plant it -if possible.”
(Bukhara, Edebu'l-mufred, (thk., Halid Abdurrahman), p. 138, Daru'l-Ma'rife, Beirut, 1966). The aim here is to make people understand the importance of planting trees.
“Whoever plants a tree is rewarded by Allah as much as the produce grown in that tree.”
(Ahmad b.Hanbal, Musnad, V, 415.)
“Whoever plants a tree and diligently looks after it until it matures and bears fruit is rewarded,”
(Ahmad b.Hanbal, Musnad, IV, 61, 374)
“Whoever plants a tree and it matures, Allah plants a tree in paradise for that person.”
(Ahmad b.Hanbal, Musnad, IV, 61).
