There is lot of hue and cry over deforestation. Then why are we not able to maintain the normal level of plant resources by compulsory planting saplings on a regular basis. If one tree is felled, two saplings should be planted to maintain a balance. Institutions should organize plant sapling drive around the city with the help of NSS and NCC. Forest department can supply saplings free of cost to all schools and colleges and encourage youngsters in creating a green landscape. Why don’t the newly led highways be decorated with green plants on either side. All efforts undertajen, when combined will have a cumulative effect on the heat.
