Old Trees Go Missing from the Promenade on Tank Bund

In a rather disturbing development for environment lovers in the city, full-grown trees have been either chopped off or poisoned to develop the park infrastructure along Tank Bund during the past few months. 


The issue came into light when photographers gathered to click pictures of the newly-developed promenade on Tank Bund. They soon realized that something was amiss, much to their horror. The Christmas tree next to Abul Hasan Tanasha’s statue, where a bird-feed seller would sit for years, is now completely dry. It has become a place for pigeons to fly down and sit on the dried-up branches.


Another tree of the same species had its top portion chopped off in May. The tree was located between the statues of Gurram Jashuva and Siddhendra Yogi. Though the tree did have fresh shoots, it eventually dried up.


It has also been observed that all the trees that dried up had deep gashes on them. According to a professor who teaches at OU, the gashes happen to be on the surface of the trees. This meant that chemicals were used to kill the trees. However, GHMC officials maintain that they simply took away dead trees.


Ironically, Hyderabad had created a record of sorts last year with 2,40,08,742 saplings being planted. The city of pearls was named ‘Tree City of the World’ as part of an initiative by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization.
