"The forest department has started working on a project to create tiger safari in the park straddling Seoni and Chhindwara districts of the state. It has been proposed to erect a boundary wall which would require pruning of shrubs and felling of 556 trees, according to an order issued by Pench national park's authorities".

 

What is the big picture?  Would more trees be planted, and not just seedlings, but good sized trees.  How many of those planted are expected to survive?  How would this park help the local people and the tiger population?

 

Seems short-sighted.

I dont think so ..cutting trees is not the way...we need to plant more...tiger safari could be managed without cutting trees also.Even if we plant new trees it would take a number of years for them to be fully grown.

The boundary wall seems counter productive as well.
