The plantation and proper upkeep of trees have always been problematic in Dwarka. When City Spidey did a survey of the trees planted on the footpaths, many lacunae came to the fore.

It was found that many trees have been bending towards the road and can fall with strong winds any time. If that happens then it can prove very dangerous to the commuters moving on the road. Moreover, it is very surprising that these trees have yet not been spotted by the authorities.

Besides, the trees, which are there on the footpaths, have been planted in a very haphazard manner. They are planted on the side of the footpaths towards the road leaving very little space for its growth.

As a result, the footpaths are getting damaged by the growth of the trees. The ill-maintenance was very evident as these were also found to be termite affected. Some trees are so affected that it can fall with the force of the wind.

While the authorities have been very short-sighted while planting these trees, they are also careless in maintaining them.
