Successful transplantation / translocation

I didn’t believe this news report at first so I decided to see for myself.

The initiative of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to translocate adult trees for road widening and construction of Metro, seems to have yielded good results.

To all cynics out there who scoffed at the efforts of the BMRC and BBMP in translocating trees chopped from MG Road boulevard to Manekshaw Parade Grounds, here’s proof of its success. You can see new leaves sprouting from several branches.




A pat on the back to all agencies involved in this effort is due. Your say?

    This is an old news. The report had come in DH at-least a week back.

    This comes as a great relief! the efforts made by these agencies have gained fruits(!)..

    Govt should learn from this exercise and ensure all trees which are proposed to be axed by nayone in the city have to translocate them at their own cost and a specified place in the city should be earmarked to accomodate such ‘refugees’
