The National Green Tribunal today directed Uttar Pradesh forest department to submit report on the allegations that 3,000 trees were felled for construction of Biodiversity park in Noida sector 91. 

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel directed the Gautam Budh Nagar Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) to verify the allegations levelled by an NGO. 

The NGO claimed that although the DFO granted permission to the Noida Authority only for removal of the Eucalyptus trees, the Authority ordered a private contractor for removal of 3000 trees of different species. 

The NGO has also sought prohibition on further felling of trees at the Biodiversity Park site and plantation of ten times the number of trees felled by the Authority in the area. The tribunal has posted the matter for further hearing November 14.
