3 weeks before rains, 50,000 trees posing danger yet to be trimmed

MUMBAI: The south-west monsoon is expected to hit the city in another three weeks, but the BMC is yet to trim nearly 50,000 of the 93,353 trees identified as posing threats of fall of branches during heavy wind or rain.

Similarly, the civic body is also yet to remove 65 of the 534 dead trees identified this year. Last month, a 38 year old man died after a tree collapsed over him in Dadar’s Naigaon area.
