Urban spaces are developing everyday and it is difficult to retain the trees in the area because of new bridges being built. Residents in Bengaluru recently faced an issue and a Hyderabadi man came to their rescue with a unique method, hardly explored in the attempt to save trees. The method helped urbanisation and also saved the trees from getting destroyed in the process.

According to a media report, Ramchandra Appari decided to take up translocation after he felt sad about the loss of trees in Hyderabad in 2009 when the Hyderabad-Vijaywada highway was being built. He was introduced to the ancient technique of translocation by a friend in Australia. The man has since started Green Morning Horticulture Services Private Limited and has done various projects that will help the unnecessary cutting of trees to stop.

 

Appari along with his company upon taking the project identify the trees and dig about 4 feet deep around the tree and treated with chemicals before they are transported safely later. The tree is transported with its roots wrapped into a ball and packed in a large jute bag. Ramchandra has translocated over 5,000 trees with a success rate of 80 percent, which is quite impressive. The Hyderabadi man will now be helping the Bengaluru residents in Jayamahal retain 112 trees so that it doesn’t hamper the oxygen levels and urbanisation at the same time.
