Nalgonda: One lakh saplings would be planted in Nalgonda village on November 19 to improve the green cover.
In a joint meeting between forest officials and Nalgonda municipality here, Chief Conservator of Forests Rakesh Mohan Dobriyal said the program to plant one lakh saplings in a day aims to create a healthy environment in the village by improving the green cover. The officials have already identified the areas for planting. Instead of open spaces on the outskirts of towns, the pits would be planted in open spaces in the colonies. A pleasant atmosphere would be created in the colonies in the future, he added.
Instructing the officials to put up fences to protect the plantations, he said that the suggestions of the forest officials should be followed by the municipal officials while planting saplings in the middle of the roads. Tree protectors should be provided for saplings that would be planted in open areas to ensure their survival. Watering should be taken from the first day of planting the plants, he said.
District Collector T Vinay Krishna Reddy said digging of pits at 10 places identified for planting one lakh saplings was almost complete. Gai plantations would also be taken up in some areas of Nalgonda to beautify the town, he added.
He stated that the works to widen the road in Nalgonda municipality will be completed in six months, he said that avenue plantations will be done along 35 kilometers in the town.
Conservator of Forests Shivani Dongre, Nalgonda Municipal Commissioner and Dr. Ramana Chary were also present in the meeting.
