In the line of Saw

Scores of trees have been cut down along the G-9 – G-10 road fot the widening of roads … with every tree down I feel an untold pain on this mass murder …!!!

I’ll be much happier if Islooittes come out of their cocoons (read houses) on cycles instead of cars that is causing this murder on large-scale ….!

    its not practical to go around on bikes :)

    the green belts are generally used for roads only if the master plan had the place chalked as roads. sometimes u need to make new roads just cause of the traffic …. the best way to solve the problem is by planting trees back. lots of em.

    and also kick mcdonalds out of the f-9 park :P

    This all is very painfull, I do not have words to explain it, : (, these killers have no feelings who orderd to cut these trees.

    Grwoing trees back is not a solution because these trees take ten to twenty years to grow…

    I remember Rawalpindi Saidpur road was full of trees in 1999, people use to stay under shadow in summer, those trees were mainting the ECO system.

    But just for the sake of these cars/rikshaws/trucks etc they cut all of those trees and now that roads looks like a TRASH wih tons of dust arround and polution.

    The only one solution I see is that the Govt should look exterior area of Isb for papulation, instead of interior.

    We should not be touching any trees inside of Isb.

    SOON ISB WILL BECOME A “RAJA BAZAR”…

    How can they widen the roads without felling trees? Beats me.

    Rather than mourning the fallen trees, Mr/s Pine-Apple should have come up with a solution to save — apple-[pine or otherwise]-bearing or non-fruit-bearing — trees.

    I for one won’t be braving Islamabad’s road or even footpaths on a bike.

    More trees were planted than were cut and all according to the master plan according to CDA; http://www.jang-group.com/jang/dec2006-daily/29-12-2006/islamabad/raw1.gif
