It’s sad to see many trees being axed down in the name of development.
Over the past few years climates have changed, due to many trees that were axed to
make way for an underpass construction and wider road and also for construction of buildings which results in pollution and global warming to the city.
People used to appreciate the climate of Bangalore because of its green cover but now in recent times, the climate is getting hotter every year because of the fast vanishing trees.
In 2018, more than 200 trees were axed as The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation
Limited (BMRCL) added the six coach train along the purple line and green line connecting Byappanahalli & Mysuru Road and connecting Nagasandra & Yellachenahalli respectively.
Also, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) in its annual budget 2018-2019, has announced that the city will have air purifiers installed at six different locations at the cost of Rs 5Crores , which will lead to more deforestation in the garden city.
“According to the environmentalists, not only city green’s has been destroyed but has also harmed the Karnataka capital’s climate”.
If trees continue to be chopped
off rapidly, it will be named as one of the hottest city in the upcoming years.
