ADE expresses displeasure over GHADC decision on tree felling 14.12.2018 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
TURA, Dec 14: The Association for Democracy and Empowerment (ADE) has expressed its displeasure over the decision of the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC) to fell mature timber trees from within its reserves in an effort to make shore up its finances.
“The decision for auctioning several hundreds of mature trees of Damalgre Range, Naguapara Range, Phulbari Range and Samanda Range forest areas by the GHADC is extremely disturbing,” said the NGO in a release issued on Friday.
“In these distressful times while we face hazards of climate change and environmental catastrophes, the GHADC instead of strengthening efforts to fight such problems is doing exactly the opposite. The cutting down of these trees is going to lead to negative impacts on the ecosystem and the environment as a whole,” they added.
