Save our Trees


Found this in a newspaper today. Workers of the municipal administeration chopped down an old tree which had stood outside Bagh-e-Jinnah for years. At the same time, they also knocked down some power lines in the process. The government is proposing to plant a green belt in and around Lahore while at the same time chopping to old grown trees that have provided shade, beauty, and clean air to Lahore for years.

    This is a grotesque murder in any way you look at it…

    Why can’t these people grow up and get some sense knocked into these bloody heads? When are they going to learn to live in harmony with their environment?

    Sometimes you need to cut trees. But the rule here in Delhi is that for every tree you remove, you plant ten saplings. TEN! Hence the green cover in Delhi has actually increased in Delhi over the years. This is also why Delhi gets more rainfall than its suburbs

    A look into old Lahore tells us that only 35 years ago there was around 30 feet wide green belt around the entire walled city. Most of it has been destroyed now. Why not restore the old charms before boasting about new plans?

    Trees.. why the hell do we need more trees ? I mean c’mon….what are we supposed to do with all those cars on the road. Where will they go.

    In three years you will not see any tree, then the ppl will think how the fuck did we get here. With the banks and car companies in bed, pushing vehicles onto roads with no capacity just to see thier profits rise !

    Why don’t these ppl do some creative brainstorming to think out a more environmently friendly solution !
