RWAs, schools to carry out tree census in Feb

NEW DELHI: After Sarvodaya Enclave carried out a tree survey in 2012, Mirambika School in south Delhi and Gulmohar Park will undertake a similar exercise in February. Meanwhile, citizens' groups will be conducting a workshop for resident welfare associations and schools on Thursday where the forest department will discuss the protocols for carrying out the citywide tree census. A pilot project will also be launched with five RWAs and five schools. In 2010, Mirambika School had released an extensive book on the trees, creepers and shrubs within its campus. Former principal Kamala Menon said the exercise would take off from that and was being planned as a long term initiative.
