CDA using the latest technology to relocate trees
Islamabad: Capital Development Authority (CDA), after resuming work of G-7/G-8 underpass at Faisal Avenue, is now working on the safer plantation of grown trees using the latest transplant or at new locations.
In light of the construction work of the underpass, the committee under the directions of the Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency (PAK-EPA), is now supervising the project of transplantation of trees to a safer location.
The committee has directed the concerned formation to ensure proper monitoring of the transplanted trees for ensuring their survival. As a result, the project would add value to the environment upon its completion.
It should also be mentioned here that the CDA management has devised a policy to plant 30 trees in the city in lieu of one affected tree. Based on this policy, not only are the previous trees being transplanted but new ones are also being planted at alternative sites.
