Staff Correspondent

HUBLI: Sanjay Bijjur, Deputy Forest Conservator, Dharwad division, has appealed to the people to inform the department about their requirement of saplings for 2006 by August 30. In a release, he has said that every year farmers, various organisations and general public approach the Forest Department in June and July and place orders for saplings of various species. As it is difficult to supply large number of saplings at such a short notice, the department has come up with a new programme, he has said. Those who want the saplings can contact the Zonal Forest Office in Dharwad, Hubli and Kalghatgi by August 30, or Ph: 2447092. — Staff Correspondent
