According to NDTV, under Principal Chief Conservator of forests (PCCF), Pawan Kumar’s directions, the state’s Forest Department will be joining forces with the Gram Sabhas to identify such trees and ensure their conservation.
After the tree is identified, a display board will be put near it citing it’s newly acquired status, details of its age and how it is beneficial to the ecosystem.

“I have submitted guidelines on this project to the government and the approval will come in a week. Thereafter, all the DFO’s will be officially informed to start working on this project.”

Further, he added :

“Approximately 60,000 trees will be identified in phase one of this project, which will be led by a biodiversity management committee. Directions will be sent to railways, cantonment boards, and government residential colonies to share information about heritage trees in the area under their jurisdiction and allow the committee to start efforts for their conservation.”
