Monsoon: Monsoon interval up to 2 months on felling of trees Gurgaon News


GURGAON: Monsoon coupled with heavy rains, strong winds and unstable soil conditions – “which can make logging operations hazardous” – will lead to a two-month hiatus from July 1 activity. The forest department has decided to focus on the plantation drive for the next two months instead of focusing on applications for felling of trees. Also, monsoon accelerates the growth of trees and thus they cannot be cut down. This is a positive step keeping in mind that the development works over the years have affected the green cover of Gurgaon.

The Forest Department's office usually receives many applications for felling trees on the last day of the season, keeping staff busy inspecting and assigning sites. Permits However, with the onset of monsoon, the field staff will be actively involved in several plantation drives across the region. A forest official said, “First of all, the staff cannot effectively manage the plantation drive as well as requests for felling of trees. Plantation activities require a lot of time, effort and resources. Secondly, It is not advisable to cut or trim trees during the rainy season, as there is a greater risk of accidents and injuries to staff and the public which pose potential environmental concerns.” Focusing on the plantation drive, the department aims to increase green cover, improve ecological balance and contribute to overall betterment. The department has planned various initiatives, including distribution of saplings, tree planting ceremonies and awareness campaigns. Ecologist and wildlife researcher Sunil Harsana said, “Trees play an important role in the water cycle by storing moisture and facilitating its percolation. The roots not only nourish the trees themselves, but It also helps to prevent flooding by regulating the flow of water. During the rainy season, the insect population increases significantly. Also, many species of birds take advantage of this time to raise their young Reptiles seek shelter by climbing trees to escape the wet ground.
