STOP Cutting of TREES unnecessarily for namesake Electric lines work!

While we mourn for  tropical forests filled with biodiversity and vast ecology, getting destroyed every moment of the day, there are also certain small green spots which might not be as attractive and appealing as those  but certainly play a role in purifying our most polluting cities. In Busy, Polluted Cities the few trees present by roadside or such are the sole lifeline of the city. These trees serve as abodes for numerous birds and also act as pollution-controlling agents. As these trees are so much needed to house birds and other fauna and also act in reducing Pollution, we need to protect them. 

These benefits are decreasing as the tree cover is declining due to indiscriminate felling of the trees.

These trees are chopped due to  Electric Wires issues and very often huge parts of trees are cut unnecessarily. These trees are not under protection as they are not considered as ecologically sensitive zones and do not come under Forest Protection Acts.

The purpose might be suited by cutting small branches, but huge parts of the tree, and sometimes even the entire tree is chopped by Electric dept. due to false complaints given by people and the casual indifferent attitude towards trees by people. So let's demand to stop cutting trees for Electric lines work. We need more oxygen and relief from heat-waves to survive than electricity.

These trees are the most threatened and there is no activity or movement or campaign to save them.This is in the context of trees which are unnecessarily chopped in the pretext of electric line disruption. It is a fact that huge trees spread about the electric lines may cause disruption but for that it's not essential to chop the entire tree or huge parts of that. There is also a significant flaw in town-planning and placing of Electric poles in such a manner that the wires are entangling with branches of trees. Instead of removing these flaws and restructuring these systems, the authorities just axe the trees.

As underground cable works are being undertaken in many places now it's useless to cut trees like this and many times it's just a casual indifferent approach towards trees that leads to search incidents. Many times, it's also happening due to needless complaints given by intolerant citizens. These cutting of trees should meet widespread protest by the citizens to get a permanent stop.

This problem might seem simple to many, but it is not so because trees lose their nutritional balance when they are chopped irregularly and many trees have got uprooted due to this. This problem occurs in many places but here it is with special reference to Maharanipeta, (near Collector's Office& Jagadamba) Visakhapatnam where this problem occurs most significantly and Electric dept. comes every week to chop trees due to false complaints by intolerant citizens.

Next time you see this happening in your surroundings be sure to speak up and just verify whether there is really a need for felling the trees. Make sure you give complaint to Electric dept. and start voicing out your protest for this, as this has a great impact. 

Let's put a stop to this illogical felling of TREES.
