Stop Cutting Trees for Road-Widening Projects in chhattisgarh

This petition had 169 supporters

Thousands of trees all over the Raipur-Jagadalpur road, many of them century-old, have been cut for road widening and infrastructure development projects central and state govt. Many more trees face the same fate. In several cases, road widening was deemed unnecessary. Alternate option has to be considered like instead of cutting the tree , they can be moved to other places.

We call on the DPWH and Department of Environment and Natural Resources to stop all tree-cutting activities for road widening projects until a review of this policy is undertaken. This review should provide a mechanism for genuine public consultation and a detailed scientific assessment the cutting of trees may have on the environment, especially with climate change and harder-hitting climate-related natural disasters.
