listen to the news
In Chandigarh government schools, white trees have become a threat to children’s heads. Schools have also informed the administration about this problem by writing letters and meeting in private many times, but the Chandigarh administration is lax and negligent when it comes to pruning trees and removing dangerous trees. In recent days, due to rains, white tree branches have fallen in many schools, but they have not been pruned by the Department of Horticulture of Chandigarh Administration. In many schools, white sapphire trees are dying from their roots.
Many safflower trees are rooted, many are bent at 45 degrees.
At the GMSSS-23 school, many white trees are dying from their roots, their roots are very weak. Whites about 20 feet long are tilted up to 45 degrees, they can fall at any time. He has been written to the administration several times and has been asked to meet in person for classification and withdrawal. Near these trees is a school stage. – Seema, Principal, GMSSS-23
A month ago white branches fell on the front door
About a month ago, the branches fell off the main gate of the GMSSS-35 due to bad weather. During this time they spent the summer holidays and it was between 6 in the morning and 7 in the morning, so there was no damage to life or property. The school has about 100 white wood trees, which are prone to falling in the rain due to their great height. Instead of cutting down trees, the Department of Horticulture should make them smaller by shaping them so that both the tree and the human being are safe. , Pradeep Triveni, ecologist, GMSSS-35
There is fear of breaking the target during rainy and stormy weather.
I do homework in both Sector-20D and Sector-22 schools. Both schools are old, so there are a lot of whitewashed ones here. Due to the lack of proper pruning of whites, they are very long, being raw, there is fear of breaking them during rain and storm. At school it’s best for all whites to be close to the walls, kids can’t. , Swaran Singh Kamboj, president of the UT Teacher Employees Association
Expert opinion: pruning every three months, planting strong trees instead of white ones
Dr. Suman Mor, an ecologist at Punjab University, said it is a misconception that we cannot cut down any trees. In the enclosure where the tree is planted, management must decide whether this tree is not a threat to any human being. If this is the case, the tree should be pruned, if necessary, it can be removed completely. No one can be killed in the name of saving things. The management should cut down the trees in your enclosure every three months. If the tree has become very old and if the tree is white or ashoka, which has very weak roots and falls in bad weather, they can be removed with the permission of the environment department. Instead, new trees with strong roots should be planted.
Take special care of these things
1. Plant trees with strong roots like Peepal, Neem.
2. Take responsibility for the trees around you, cut them down and prune them every three or six months.
3. Tall trees like Safedae should be given the right shape and should not be allowed to grow too much, they should be removed when the tree is weak.
4. The department should audit the trees, many trees get termites, they should be treated from time to time. The tree is also a living being, it also needs proper care.
5. The department should keep records of trees and trees with weak roots should be removed immediately and new trees should be planted in their place.
6. Concrete is the one that weakens the roots of the trees the most, so the trees get sick and weaken. He prefers to save the trees for the beauty of the stones.
