Treeless E-City

I wanted to take a long walk from my office today (Monday morning blues?) and came out to see a shocker.

The trees on one side of the road in Electronics City (Ph. 2) were cut down.

What remains is only the bottom portion of the trunks :-(

I couldn’t understand the rationale behind such a move.

What are we doing to this city? Who is really worried about the environment?

Any ideas to stop such things in the future?

    A similar situation occured in HSR Layout (near the Cambridge Public School). There were 4 fully grown trees, that were at the intersection of two main roads. There was atleast 20 feet of space between the trees, so an alternate arrangement (circle, narrow road between the trees) could have been considered. Instead they took the easiest way out and all four trees were cut down.

    The toll highway will enter electronics city from the main entrance. For this they had to pull down the trees. I dont know if it is a wise decision!
