The Heritage Trees of Chandigarh




Apart from the imprints left by Le Corbusier, the natural heritage of Chandigarh can also be seen in the centuries old trees. It has taken hundreds of years for these trees to mature gracefully in the landscape of City Beautiful.
As the city develops, these heritage trees may be in danger. To preserve these trees, the Heritage Trees Project was planned with an objective to conserve and to educate the community on the importance of protecting our trees.

According to this Project, there are plans to prepare after every five years - a list of trees which - because of their age, size, type, historical association or horticultural value - are of special importance to the City. The Mission of the volunteers of this project is to preserve, manage, enhance, and expand a vital collection of plants in an active, urban setting.

Most of these Heritage Trees are of flourishing, are free of damage and are also sufficiently well suited to preservation. As Heritage Trees are a part our Natural Heritage, a special care programme can be put up to conserve them. There is also an urgent need to motivate concerned officials to adopt other measures to prevent soil compaction or excavation around the root zone. The UT administration has been very proactive and has already started the conservation project in conjunction with an NGO called Yuvasatta. Wishing happy conserving to both the teams!
