Hafeezpet government school has turned home to six trees, which would have been axed in November 2018 if not transplanted here, thanks to the Vata foundation. The foundation had transplanted the trees from Kothaguda junction to the school, as a flyover is planned for the location.
The Tree Protection Committee had permitted the felling of trees, as a flyover was being constructed in Kothaguda Junction. Uday Krishna and a team of volunteers got permission from the government to transplant some trees so that at least some are saved from translocation. The team found that Hafeezpet government school, once barren, was around a kilometre away from the junction and a perfect place for the trees.
