On the one hand, while people are campaigning vigorously to save the trees, on the other hand, some people are ruining the tree by hanging boards and electric wires. There is plenty to see here in Chennai. Where the Greater Chennai Corporation has taken a big step against those who harm them by placing advertisements, wires or lights on the roadside trees.
It is being told that now on doing so, a fine of Rs 25,000 has been imposed on people as well as private institutions as well as a provision of three years jail sentence. While warning to remove the advertisement from the trees in ten days, the Chennai Corporation has said that it is against nature to nail the trees.
On the other hand, botanical experts have said that many diseases are also caused to trees by hitting the nail on trees and putting light on them. At the same time, there is an effect on their growth. At the same time, the trees may look healthy, although they become hollow from inside and by applying light on the trees, their photosynthesis process starts at night. At the same time, its effect is also seen on the fertility of trees. Earlier last month, the Corporation was asked by the Madras High Court to file an affidavit in the matter of action on tree spikes, advertising planters and those who carry cable wires from trees.
