GREEN - Going from Bangalore

Once known as Garden City, Bangalore could soon become concrete city. Bangalore has witnessed rampant loss of greenery in the name of development. With saving green cover becoming the last priority when development projects are planned, trees are regularly facing the axe. In recent times, India’s tech hub has lost around 50,000 trees, which were axed to widen roads choked with traffic, build flyovers at busy road intersections, road underpasses and now metro rail. Also, not only has the city's green beauty been destroyed due to developmental works, but the loss of green cover is also harming the capital's climate. Bangalore’s weather is changing fast and is no more that pleasant as it was earlier. If trees continue to be chopped off rapidly, the city's average temperature will rise by two-three degrees Celsius in the coming years.
Some Tree facts -  • Trees purify the air we pollute and absorb toxic chemicals from the soil • Trees bring rain and conserve rainwater, which feeds streams, rivers and lakes • Trees provide shelter and food for birds, bees, butterflies and a host of insects and animals • Trees prevent soil erosion and transform barren wasteland into fertile soil • Trees absorb noise so planting trees around roads with traffic makes the road seem popu-lated. Study shows that people drive slower on a road with trees than without • Trees provide a sense of wellbeing and peace in their immediate surroundings • Planting fruit trees is being acknowledged as a sustainable solution to end the world’s hunger crisis • Trees planted around buildings reduce heating and cooling bills Planting a tree is the single most effective action any individual or organisation can take to truly heal the environment. So go ahead, do your bit. Plant more trees. Let’s populate the city with more and more trees so we can get back our depleted greenery even if takes a few years. If everyone plants a tree as a solution to this issue, I’m sure it’s possible to keep Bangalore green and beautiful.   royal challengers
