When inquired with the forest department under whose purview permission should be sought, they said that FOUR trees on the said road at Chennama Circle will be cut and the city corporation has sought permission for the same.
The permission was sighting a reason that many accidents happen at that spot and by cutting the tree that part of the road will be widened.
If we look closely this particular tree lies on the footpath and how this tree was causing accidents is a mystery.
Again the same question, in the name of development why curse the mother nature. Cant anything be done without cutting those trees.
Was an alternate plan prepared that if the trees are not cut we could have the road this way or that way?
To cut a tree is very simple but to grow one is very difficult and it takes years.
As permission has been sought nothing is illegal but what about preserving and conserving nature. If we cant grow a tree we should atleast see that we dont cut one.
Poor Belgaum !
