Kalyani Nagar, 19th February 2023: Kalyani Nagar residents have taken the initiative to remove nails from the neighborhood’s trees. The initiative was conducted today from 7.30 am to 9.30 am.

Hoardings, signs, and advertisements are frequently fastened to trees. The nails are later abandoned, which affects the growth of trees. People gathered to demand that Kalyani Nagar be free of nails and illegal banners. On Sunday mornings, the locals go around the Kalyani Nagar area for two hours to remove nails from trees.

Team Swachh Kalyani Nagar (TSKN) and Green Living Foundation (GLF) have undertaken the initiative. Illegal banners erected on walls, Msedcl boxes, and street light poles were also taken down in this initiative.

From light poles and other places, up to 30 flex pieces were removed. Around 80 posters were affixed to trees. There were also large banners, so people asked the Skysign Department to take proper action in this regard.

Aruna Suratkal, a TSKN member said, “The initiative is time bound as we just have two hours, hence, we will try to cover as many trees as possible.” She further stated that this initiative is important as nailing trees can have a huge impact on trees’ growth and their oxygen-giving capacity.

“In the future, we also wanted nailed-free trees and no illegal hoardings or banners. The offenders who do not just damage the trees or make the area appear chaotic with the banners and advertisement boards should be fined by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC),” said the participants.
