Chandigarh Tree Lovers (CTL) has drawn interest to the plight of bushes at diverse places in the metropolis wherein the trunk or roots – whichever component is touching the floor – has been fully blanketed with the concrete or interlocking tiles, thus blockading air and water supply to the timber apart from disallowing micro-organisms which are a critical part of their eco-system to survive. Hundreds of trees have died, but the concerned branch that lay down charcoal or tiles on the roads or pavements in diverse establishments has shown sheer indifference to town timber’s well-being by using doing so. The experts additionally indicated the violations of the suggestions of the National Green Tribunal that have stipulated not to build any concrete and leave as a minimum 3 feet space on each side of the tree base as a way to allow it to breathe and increase.
Rajnish Watts, the founder member of CTL employer, gave examples of New York and a few European nations wherein at the least 9 feet area is left around the trees. He also talked about some town goers’ lack of expertise who do landscaping of their lawns cover the complete tree base with pebbles or different concrete, without realizing that it is probably lethal for the trees.

However, the concrete around its root system severely affects this system of the passage of nutrients and hurts microorganisms, resulting in infecting the tree and its sluggish dying. A similar situation is rampant at numerous locations, especially from Gandhi Bhawan to Art Block 3 and the round pupil center in Punjab University. Sadly, you could see many timbers which as soon as existed have disappeared or are left in the form of the tiny remaining trunk or as dry bushes or some with their trunk bursting open in the campus. Professor Vinod Kumar, a faculty member in the sociology branch who sat on dharna frequently towards concretizing round timber, said, “Hundreds of wood have died because of concretization around bushes in Panjab University within the past. Trees look inexperienced, but they start dying regularly and internally with concrete blocking off their air and water supply and killing microorganism that grows on the soil around them and is critical a part of the bushes’ survival.
In this way, the complete eco-system around bushes gets severely affected. The birds, butterflies, insects all and so forth too vanish as the timber dry or dies.” He also objected to the interlocking tiles laid all across the PU campus, pronouncing that those tiles emit warmth and do not allow water to absorb within the ground or grass to develop. According to sources, a sub-committee under the chairmanship of appearing vice-chancellor and dean of the college held an assembly and decided no longer to have concrete systems round palm bushes, not talking approximately different timber, in its campus a day earlier than. Kumar instructed TOI that the construction around the tree base in the university’s stadium commenced again on Wednesday. He shared the hobbies’ images, and movies and stated that he could sit down on protest once more and might not relent till the development work isn’t stopped.
