Plantations proposed

March 16, 2017, Bengaluru, DHNS 1:09 IST
The state government has given the Forest Department a bigger responsibility this year.

Apart from undertaking plantation drives, thrust has also been laid on creating more solar powered pumpsets in forest patches to overcome the water crisis and mitigate man-animal conflict.

The government has shown interest in protecting the forest patches in urban areas by developing them into tree parks and constructing boundaries around them. The state government has announced the creation of 50 tree parks in forest lands and name them after noted environmentalist Salumarada Thimakka.
