Giant trees with their leaves, branches and roots neatly trimmed will quickly be making their approach out on heavy responsibility vehicles from throughout the sprawling compound of the damaged down Secretariat buildings.
Vata Foundation, the voluntary company, has started the trimming train and digging across the roots as a prelude to the large activity of translocating the 33-odd absolutely grown trees to a non-public land in Shamshabad on Thursday.
The authorities has permitted relocation of those a long time outdated trees fairly than permit them to be chopped off and offered as firewood following appeals made by environmentalists and inexperienced activists.
“We had offered our services for free because there are citizens willing to support this initiative. The government departments are helping us to uproot and lift them onto the trucks for the permitted batch of trees,” defined P. Uday Krishna.
The Founder-Trustee of Vata Foundation stated it might take greater than per week to translocate the trees and stated the price of the replantation and their transport is being borne by the non-public celebration enthusiastic about replanting the trees in its personal property.
While appreciative of being allowed to avoid wasting the absolutely grown trees, he’s shocked the Forest Department gave permission for “felling” of as much as 70 trees inside the compound. “Every tree can be saved by translocation irrespective of the age and species. There is no need for felling. Given a chance, we want to save and relocate those permitted for felling also. We have made a request but do not know who will take the final call,” he stated.
Mr. Uday Krishna’s and his batch of inexperienced volunteers competition is many of the 300-odd trees, if not all, positioned inside might be translocated.
“There are many citizens ready to adopt and plant these fully grown trees in their respective properties. We once again appeal to the Roads & Buildings, GHMC, and the Forest departments to allow us to save as many trees as possible,” he added.
