There is good news for Ahmedabad Citizens as more than four-fifth of the trees uprooted for making way for BRTS Bus Stands on Sola Science City Road have survived after transplantation.
In a pragmatic eco-friendly practice, AMC authorities had replanted the uprooted trees in a nearby garden. It is heartening to note that only 20% of the replanted trees perished.
Happy with the success, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation is thinking of doing the same for redevelopment projects in the future for preserving the city’s green cover. It can help find a middle way between the unavoidable sacrifice of green cover for infrastructure projects and worry for ecology.
