[Updated] Save Trees: Potters Hill attacks trees with iron nails and wires and claims certification from Ecotourism Society

Huge Board on the entrance says “Potters Hill Nature Park” and to ensure so, Ecotourism Society has certified it. However, it appears that it was done without any inspection of the camp. Have a look at the photographs taken in this unique nature park, which has nailed almost any tree they found to be appropriate to support their infrastructure, hang their signal boards, lights. One of the photographs shows three iron pipes fixed to a single tree with nails and metal wires. The waste management doesn’t seems to hold any relevance in ecotourism. Dumping plastic bottles and bags in a corner is considered a proper way to dispose of the waste. In addition, that domestic LPG cylinder isn’t at its right place and being used for commercial purpose. The owner has no fear of being pointed out and kept the cylinder in an open space proudly.

The lovers of nature too seem to have ignored these facts or didn’t notice at all. Please wake up friends. Do not close your eyes to these usually witnessed issues. Don’t wait for someone to take initiative, rather be the first to point out.We have written to DFO Shimla and HPESB regarding many such trees heading towards death due to wounds given by humans. However, no one seems to have taken the matter of saving trees seriously. Our government departments are full of recommended illiterates who don’t even know to what disastrous future their ignorance leading the humanity to. Our citizens too cooperates them by closing their eyes to these faults.
