It seems that while repairing the road, tree acts were not followed and the base was concretized. Such practice is a violation of the tree act in Delhi. Such a practice is killing trees.

With this photograph, CitySpidey hopes to highlight the subject of concretization of trees among concerned authorities so that relevant measures can be taken and such an act can be avoided in the future.
