"The plantation without tree guards or fencing is of no use. Most of the plants were eaten by stray cattle on the same day they were planted. This is a waste of resources and efforts", said Robin Mittal, a resident of Fusion Homes.
Various residents of Cherry county and Fusion homes raised the complaint to the Horticulture Department to provide tree guards for the plant. According to the residents, officials from the Horticulture Department visited the area on Friday. They assured the residents that they will arrange tree guards and also will provide a facility of watering plants through tankers.
"Today, Horticulture Department officials visited the area and a joint inspection was done with Cherry Green Circle, a small residential group of Cherry County Society. The horticulture department team has assured us that they will do the needful for the proper maintenance of these plants", said Manish Tripathi, a resident of Cherry County Society.
City Spidey talked to an official from the Horticulture Department, Mukesh Kumar. He said, " We will take care of the plants by watering them daily and also will ensure tree fencing to protect the plants from stray cattle".
