Trees are the best friends of man, for they provide him protection from harshness of nature, be it rains or sunlight. Trees have their historic, scientific,
medical and religious uses. When an apple fell on Isaac Newton’s head, it lead to the discovery of gravitation, helping the invention of aircraft. Over two millennia ago, Buddha attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree at Bodhgaya.
A descendant of the same tree at the same spot attracts millions of pilgrims and tourists every year. The Forest Research Institute at Dehradun, which has a unique museum of trees, was an instrumental in preserving the Bodhi tree at Bodhgaya. Similarly, the Botanical Garden in Kolkata has one of the oldest and largest banyan tree in India. It also has a unique palm tree that gives its first crop only at the age of 120. Such trees are part of the environmental heritage of the country and need to be protected form hazards, natural or otherwise. The Indian
National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage’s (INTACH) plan to catalogue and preserve all heritage trees needs to be welcomed. The programme will give a boost to environmental tourism and increase our understanding of the role, trees have played in the evolution of civilization.
