Besant Nagar Elliot’s beach road on a Sunday morning.
It is heartening to see vehicles off the beach road on Sunday mornings. However, it is sad to see the trees on the beach front with hardly any leaves. This is not a seasonal phenomenon but round the year. Maybe these trees can not withstand the sea breeze. If that is the case, other species may be planted. Experts, your views, please.
After the devastating storm ‘Vardah’,it was painful to see many a mighty tree felled by it. After almost 4 weeks, now there is hope as I see the green shoots sprouting from the tree stumps.
Let us hope for a Green Chennai.
I must also compliment NGO’s like ‘Nizhal'(http://www.nizhaltn.org/) which has done great work in restoring many trees. More important, they have created awareness among the general public on green issues.
The Indira Nagar Park has a lot of shade-giving and flowering trees.One big tree had a weak bottom and it was neglected.It was obvious that it was an accident waiting to happen. Predictably, it came crashing down last week damaging a stone bench and its canopy. there was also some minor damages to the fence and one of the houses nearby. With proper care and management, the tree could have been saved and damages avoided.

Who should take the initiative, the Corporation which owns and runs the park or the public?
