JP Dabral – Tehri Dam transmission lines illegal tree felling



JP Dabral Citizen Journalist – IBN 7 – Illegal tree felling in Kandakhanikhal, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand

Real Heroes Award for environment has been conferred on J.P.Dabral for his contribution to save trees and the environment. Dabral has single handedly forced the government to reduce the 90000 trees it was planning to fell for the construction of the transmission line from Tehri Dam. Nearly 85% of the trees were saved because of Dabral’s effort. The timber lobby weaned away the people through threats, bribes and by exploiting their compulsions. Dabral continued the struggle by invoking the Supreme Court and stopped the felling of trees and at the same time ensured that there is no delay in the completion of the transmission line. It is pertinent to point out that most of the trees were over 150 to 200 years old.
