The Tree Authority which comes under the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has cleared the proposal for felling of over 2,702 trees in Aarey Forest for the much contested Metro car shed project.

The Tree Authority permitted Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) to cut 2,232 trees from the Aarey Colony and translocate 469 others to make way for the construction of the car service centre.

The proposal has been in talks for quite some time. Earlier in August, the proposal was tabled before the Tree Authority for final approval.

Aarey Colony serves as a buffer zone for Sanjay Gandhi National Park and disturbing the forest cover here may lead to more negative interaction between humans and animals,
