Deforestation and burning trees by anti social elements has once again raised concerns on Parsik Hills. The members of the Parsik Hill Walkers Association are trying their best to conserve the trees at Parsik hill but due to the certain anti social elements, the trees here are being burnt down. Members of the walkers association say that the act is to make way for plots for the Apollo Hospital that reportedly is coming here soon. Walkers and residents of the hills are disappointed with authorities for not taking cognizance of the issue. Some acts of destructions also look dangerous for locals. Despite the continuous destruction of green heads, the walkers and joggers along with concerned residents are doing all they can to save the green cover of the hills. However, the role of NMMC that claims to plant thousands of trees each year is disappointing for they should know more than anyone that Parsik Hills form the lungs of Navi Mumbai and hence are most significant to combat the high pollution levels of the city.
