Pune, 17th June 2023: In a recent survey conducted by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), it was discovered that out of the approximately 500,000 trees spread across the city, a staggering 43,000 of them pose a significant risk to public safety.

Ashok Ghorpade, the Head of PMC Garden Department, expressed concern over the alarming number of hazardous trees in Pune. He highlighted that the main cause of these risks is the damage inflicted upon the tree roots during various infrastructural works such as cable installations and drainage line construction. Such activities have taken a toll on the city’s green cover.

However, Ghorpade assured that effective measures will be taken to address the issue by removing dangerous trees located along roadsides and in open spaces.

According to Ghorpade, these hazardous trees can be found on private properties, as well as those owned by the PMC and the government. The identified trees exhibit signs of overgrowth, tilting, dryness, and lifelessness. The precarious condition of these trees puts them at high risk of collapsing at any moment, endangering the lives of people in their vicinity.

In light of this alarming situation, the PMC is urging every citizen of Pune to seek immediate permission from the civic body for the removal of these hazardous trees. Prompt action is crucial to mitigate the potential risks associated with these unstable trees and ensure the safety of the public.
