Islam permits benefiting from the fruits of trees but forbids cutting them or breaking their branches without a genuine reason. On the contrary, Islam commands to preserve trees and encourages any reproduction process or activities which help in growing more trees. Allah's Messenger said,
If the Hour [of the Last Day] took place while one of you is holding a palm-tree seedling [to plant in the dirt], then if he can plant it before standing up, he should do it.
Islam considers planting of useful plants and beneficial trees as charity for which a Muslim is rewarded. Allah's Messenger said:
Never a Muslim plants something or cultivates it, of which birds, human beings or animals eat, but a reward is given to him for this charity.
