Protests over felling 2k trees continue online

Dehradun: Weeks after the Uttarakhand high court with-held felling of 2000 trees in Doon's Shahastradhara area and around a week before the next hearing of the case on June 22, protests against the proposal continue on social media. Ashish Garg of Eco Group said through his social media handle, "Cutting down the trees will worsen air quality, create urban heat islands and make the area prone to heatwaves, Not to mention, it will affect the habitat of birds, bees, etc. There are other ways to divert traffic, for example through outer roads, rather than felling old trees of peepal, mango, banyan, and eucalyptus." The 14-km road will connect people from Jogiwala to Pacific Gold Estate. The forest department has given its go-ahead for the project and the PWD has already awarded the contract to an agency.
Residents have been saying that the felling of the trees would be the "last nail on the coffin of green Doon", as the city has seen a series of infrastructure activities that have led to deforestation.
