Without government support, here’s how Sarjapur residents saved axed peepal, banyan trees

Bengaluru: Two years ago, numerous trees were marked to be axed while widening the road in Sarjapur, near Bengaluru. The Sarjapur Residents Welfare Association was pained by this and took a decision to save the 70-year-old trees that were a mark of belief to people and had provided shadow and housed various birds. With crowd funding, and with the help of urban conservationist Vijay Nishanth and an expert from Chennai, they transplanted four trees not knowing for sure if the trees will survive. But after two years their efforts and the risk they took then is bearing fruits as the four trees have not only managed to survive, but have bloomed again. Here is how the Sarjapur Residents Welfare Association successfully saved the trees.
