Heaps of garbage adorn forest land once designated as Bird Sanctuary in Vasundhara Sector 1 along the main road and the forest department has yet not taken cognizance of it, said tree activist, Pradeep Dahaliya who has earlier made several complaints about tree felling in Ghaziabad.

Photos clicked and sent by the activist show garbage strewn across in these woods. He pointed out that the waste material can catch fire and the deadwood around can spread it across the forest land within no time, besides causing pollution.

Dahaliya also said that he had spoken to the Forest Department official of trans-Hindon about the waste material lying around and hoped that this would be removed by the department at the earliest.
