NOIDA: Environment protection activists have written to the forest department demanding that steps be taken to prevent cutting of 6,000 trees in one go in Jewar for the upcoming international airport .
As the trees get cut, plantation of the new saplings should also start at the same time,” he added.However, the forest department said the estimate for the number of trees to be cut “is still on”.
“We are still working on the total number of trees to be cut for the project.
They propose cutting of trees in a phased manner “to avoid a massive impact on the ecology of the region”.
This is a large number and we appeal to the Union ministry of environment and forests to reconsider the decision.
