Post-FRI Report: Chandigarh Municipal Commissioner orders removal of concrete, pavers around trees

UNICIPAL COMMISSIONER K K Yadav on Monday ordered the horticulture wing to provide breathing space to all the trees in the city by removing pavers and concrete around them. He set the deadline of June 30 to complete this work.
A study by Forest Research Institute had recently pointed out that trees in the city were dying as their roots were getting damaged due to concretisation. This has been one of the major reasons for trees becoming vulnerable to high-speed winds.
The commissioner had convened a meeting of all executive engineers in the evening to discuss and implement Urban Green Guidelines, 2014. The engineers have been asked to strictly implement green guidelines, especially due to the digging by government or private purposes so that roots of trees should not be damaged or it doesn’t cause any kind of injury to the roots. Executive engineer of the horticulture wing Krishan Pal stated that thousands of trees have their area covered by pavers and they will now start removing them.
“An area of 6×6 foot has to be left around the trees. So we will begin the campaign from tomorrow. Even if it is a cycle track or anything, we are bound to free them of concretisation,” the executive engineer said.
