Abstract: "It is through the preservation of the sanctified green area and creation of a network of new ones that the extent of green area in Delhi can be increased. This is due course will enhance the number of tall trees. This is important because going in for plantation activity in additional areas is impossible in this city which itself is facing a problem regarding more space. Infact Delhi do not have sacred grove like the other states of India i.e Rajasthan, Haryana, Kereala etc, but yes there are quite a few green patched in and around and within religious places, memorial ground etc. Even at many sites the mere presence of sacred tree prevents it being felled. This established tradition if could be focused and the implied values widely spread, the community support be mastered for protection of surviving plants. Thus age old sentiments buttressed by scientific facts such as of the ability of trees, to abate pollution or transform sewage affected land and water need to be aroused to keep the economic and social greeds at bay."
