4 lakh teak saplings to be planted in 20 villages

The forest department has set a target of raising 200 hectares of teak plantations, planting 4 lakh teak saplings on agricultural lands, and raising 150 acres of bamboo groves in the district during 2013-14.

The targets are set under the State government scheme for raising teak plantations on Padugai lands, Tamil Nadu Biodiversity Conservation and Greening Project, and National Afforestation Programme (NAP) schemes respectively.

Under the scheme for raising teak plantations on Padugai lands, a total of 100 hectares of plantations have been covered till date, said N.Sathish, district forest officer.

On September 12, Collector Jayashree Muralidharan flagged off the planting of 5,000 teak saplings in Ezhil Nagar, along the Uyyakondan canal in the city. At least 10,000 saplings have been planted under the scheme so far.

A total of 30,000 additional saplings must be planted in the district to reach the target of 40,000 saplings, according to forest officials.

Under the Tamil Nadu Biodiversity Conservation and Greening Project, the government has identified 20 project villages (cluster) this year in Tiruchi division:

Kottathur, Thinnanur, Pulivalam, Manparai, T.Pudupatty, Vannadu, Muthaiyampalayam, Venkathanur, Singalanthapuram, Sengattupatti, Poigaipatty, Pannapatty (East),Usilampatty, Suliyapatty, Chettiyapatty, Marungapuri, Yagapuram, Vengatnaickenpatty, Thathanur and Thottiyapatty

It has been proposed to plant 20,000 teak saplings in agricultural lands in each village to reach the target of 4 lakh saplings, said Mr.Sathish.

10 villages selected under NAP scheme in Tiruchi division (during 2011-12 and 2012-13) in Pachamalai and Thuraiyur areas for raising bamboo groves are: Manalodai , Moolakkadu, Sembulichanpatty, Pudur,Marudhai, Ramanathapuram, Kurichi, Kambur, Top-Sengattupatty and Kundakadi.

The groves will stand in 15 hectares of farmers’ land in each village, said Mr.Sathish.

Last year, a total of 300 hectares of bamboo groves were raised. By the end of three years, a total of 450 hectares of bamboo groves will be raised in the district, he added.

Target for planting of saplings increased

The Forest Department has planned to increase the target of the number of saplings to be planted under the Chief Minister’s massive tree planting programme in 2013-14.

N. Sathish, District Forest Officer, told presspersons that 1.60 lakh saplings were planted in the district last year when the scheme was first introduced. This year, the initial target for the district was set at 2.03 lakh saplings. District Collector Jayashree Muralidharan later announced that the target for Tiruchi had been increased to four lakh saplings.

“We have raised three lakh saplings so far in the Forest Department nurseries in Thuraiyur-Sobanapuram, Edumalai-Varadarajapuram, Thuvarankurichi, and Mannaparai areas, which are ready to be planted,” said Mr. Sathish.

As a first step towards the target, 6,500 saplings were planted in nine locations in the district in February. From August 2013 till date, 80,000 saplings had been planted, he added.

With the advent of southwest monsoon, large-scale planting of saplings would be taken up, with 5,000 saplings to be planted on roadsides, street corners, and parks in the district, the DFO added.

Corporation fishing for a magic solution

Image

Tiruchirapalli City Corporation will use gambusia, a fish species, “oil balls”, and abate solution as larvicides to check mosquito breeding in households and open places as part of its dengue prevention measures in the city.

While the fish will be let out in the open and abandoned wells, “oil balls” (a mixture of waste engine oil and saw dust packed in small gunny bags) which is said to act as an effective larvicide, would be used in open drains.

Abate solution, also a larvicide, will be applied in water tanks and sumps in households. This apart, anti-mosquito fogging would be intensified, Corporation Commissioner V.P. Thandapani told The Hindu .

The civic body kicked off a mass cleaning campaign to weed out mosquito breeding sources at households on Tuesday.

The corporation and other local bodies in the district were directed to take up the three-day simultaneous cleaning exercise by Collector Jayashree Muralidharan to prevent breeding of the dengue causing aedes aegypti mosquitoes.

In Tiruchi, the corporation staff and nursing students fanned out to various areas to remove discarded plastic cups, tyres, flower pots, and other containers where rainwater could stagnate and turn a breeding ground for the mosquitoes.

The exercise was flagged off by R. Manoharan, Chief Whip in the Legislative Assembly, A. Jaya, Mayor, and Mr. Thandapani in different parts of the city.

About 850 nursing students will join corporation workers to take up the door-to-door campaign and apply abate solutions in water tanks and sumps. They will distribute pamphlets detailing ways to prevent mosquito breeding in households and other dengue control measures.

Mr. Thandapani said the rapid exercise would cover 1.80 lakh households in the city. Four special teams have been formed in each of the four zones in the city and each team will cover 3,000 houses a day. Corporation trucks and private lorries have been deployed to collect the discarded containers and garbage removed during the campaign. On Tuesday, seven lorry loads of discarded containers were removed, Mr. Thandapani said.

The corporation has requested city residents to desist from storing fresh water in open containers. Drinking water containers should be cleaned once in two days.

Mavadi Kulam revival campaign continues

to bringing Mavadi Kulam back to life, are keeping their fingers crossed.

Activists have their work cut out to clear the 143-acre dry tank of weeds before the monsoon arrives. The initiative received a much-needed boost on Sunday with heavy equipment supplementing manual labour for the first time and the district administration, led by Collector Jayashree Muralidharan, pitching in to help.

Acres of dry land that were once a lake brimming with water, just outside Ponmalaipatti, bore the beginnings of a semblance of their old self on Sunday afternoon. After cleaning by volunteers for three Sundays in a row, close to 10 per cent of the tank was clear of weeds, said Vinothraj Seshan, coordinating the initiative. The efforts of volunteers, which included NSS members, received a thrust with five excavators and two bulldozers sponsored by both government and private agencies, deployed for the work from 7 a.m. on Sunday.

Ms. Muralidharan picked up a spade and joined volunteers enthusiastically. “She worked with us for close to three hours, pulling out weeds,” said a volunteer. The surface of the tank was covered with water hyacinth and tall weeds.

Another pressing problem that activists claim was responsible for the tank drying up was also resolved. An inlet channel feeding the tank had been encroached upon for several years and brought under cultivation. Encroachers had dug out canals to irrigate the patches of paddy and sugarcane. The Collector, on Sunday, ordered the encroachments to be removed and earthmovers from the agricultural engineering department started work on reclaiming the inlet.

The initiative could be successful only if the clean-up was completed before the onset of monsoon, says Vinothraj. “We are happy that so many people were pitching in on Sundays. But the efforts will be fruitless if we do not finish the work before the rains set in.” While earthmovers were sponsored by two individuals, ‘Thanneer,’ the banner under which the Mavadi Kulam initiative has been brought under, hopes that companies and service organisations would pitch in by sponsoring machines for the weekends.

Thanneer plans to involve various units of NSS volunteers on a daily basis to remove water hyacinths clogging the tank.

The clean-up campaign will continue on Sundays.

Ms.Muralidharan said that with the cooperation of locals, an additional four lakh saplings should be planted this year so the district could become a role model for other districts.

She instructed officials to dug pits for planting saplings at open spaces in schools, colleges, industrial houses, collectorate, government offices, government hospitals, primary health centres, village panchayat union offices, veterinary hospitals, and mandal offices. Saplings would be provided by the forest department under the Social Forestry Scheme in August and September to make the most of monsoon season.
