Meet “The Tree Doctor”, Vijay Nishanth, who has been tirelessly working to save the dying trees. He has documented around 8000 trees through a GPS technology and searched for decaying trees under his flagship project Vruksha.com. This environment conservationist and animal activist believe that “a tree can be treated as humans are”.
In his study, He found that miscreants were poisoning the trees rather than cutting them to blindfold the authorities including the tree lovers. The outside look of a tree does not exhibit its moribund state. Hence, it dies a slow and secret death.
Recently, Vijay saved a Jamun tree in Bangalore. The house owner poisoned the tree after believing in superstitious advice. He believes that trees can be preserved by making every tree count.
“Whenever I map any harmed tree I clean the wounds caused on tissues of roots damaged due to poisoning, create an artificial layer with orange oil to stop the spread of infection, and within a month the tree recovers Healthy,” he said.
According to Vijay, authorities must conduct tree census and map green cover. This step will help them and activists to rescue the dying trees.

Today, When most of us don’t even know that a tree can be poisoned and mangled to a slow death, Vijay is working hard to make people aware on how to save the trees.
