Reviving coconut trees lined at Guirim taken up today

GOA: The second phase of reviving the coconut trees lined at the Guirim stretch is being taken up today. Volunteers will prepare the mud circle to ensure the manure stays intact. Last Sunday, volunteers had applied organic manure to 40 trees at the level of the Guirim flyover in a process called ‘new rooting’ to revive the trees.

“The mud circle will ensure that the manure doesn’t get washed out due to rain,” said Avertino Miranda, who led the volunteers last week under Goa Green Brigade. In addition to this, the debris left behind after the flyover was complete is also going to be cleared. “We had requested MVR Infra Projects to clear it, however, they citied lack of labour as the reason for not clearing it. We cannot wait for them because the trees are slowly dying due to choking by the debris,” Miranda said.
