Shiv Sena corporator Sheetal Mhatre has proceded with a proposal to make a ‘tree plan’ for Mumbai. This is being proposed in accordance with the city’s development plan. 

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is likely to discuss the proposal and the same will be sent to the municipal commissioner for the final approval. 

As per the proposal, there will be a detailed plan for Mumbai suggesting plantation of various types of tress in accordance with the geography of Mumbai.

Like the development plan, Mumbai should have a tree plan for every area. The tree plantation should be detailed as per the geography of the area. This will help make the city’s biodiversity richer,” Mhatre said.

The Shiv Sena corporator further said that the city’s green cover is depleting on daily basis and the tree plan will help citizens and environmentalists to conserve and protect trees in a better way.
