Mumbai’s Last remaining forest is under threat as a large number of trees are being cut for development purposes.
The financial capital of India, Mumbai, is quickly turning into a concrete jungle. It is hard to find any green patch in the sprawling city. While the debate between urbanisation and environment continues, the city is losing its greenery thick and fast. Now, in a bid to construct metro rail, the city may lose its last green patch, that is, Aarey Forest. Almost recent 3,500 trees will be cut for the construction of a car shed for the upcoming Mumbai Metro 3.
