A climate conservation group has volunteered to transplant 16 trees from the DLF golf course from a residential area to cow shelters and temples.

The NGO, Haryali, has vowed to save these trees - 14 peepal and two gular - through transplantation. The trees would be taken out after cutting the concretes with help of JCB cutters.

"The roots have entered the houses built nearby. The roots, if lifted with hydra-machines without removing the concrete, will kill the tree. We have to break the concrete and save the roots from dying," said Vivek Kamboj of Haryali.

The affected roots will be treated with anti-fungal chemicals and root hormones before being lifted and transplanted.

"The process has started and it will take about two to three days for the whole process to finish. After all the treatment is done the tree will be lifted with the hydra-machines and transplanted to the cow shelter," Kamboj said, adding that it two to three months for every tree to come back to its normal state.
