In this context, trees being transplanted were either in the median strips or in the vicinity of project where construction work is being carried out. The tree transplanter has been acquired from Pakistan Navy to shift the grown trees, affected due to construction work, at an alternative place in the vicinity.In addition to transplantation of grown trees, plants were also planted near this so that upon completion this project will not only ease the traffic flow in the vicinity but would also add to the beauty of the city.
It is pertinent to mention here that CDA has decided that in future no tree will be chopped due to construction work rather it will be transplanted to an alternative site. For this purpose CDA Development Working Party during its recent meeting has also approved the procurement of latest and modern tree transplanters for safe shifting of grown trees afftected due to development projects.
