Heritage Trees

A heritage tree is typically a large, individual tree with unique value, which is considered irreplaceable. The major criteria for heritage tree designation are age, rarity, and size, as well as aesthetic, botanical, ecological, and historical value. Maharashtra state government had decided to grant heritage status to trees that are over 50 years old. If a 100-year-old tree is hacked, 100 new saplings will have to be planted at the same site or at a public space. Protect trees policy provides for up to Rs 1 lakh penalty for violations. SAAR IT Resources Pvt. Ltd. have to conduct a tree census every five years and maintain a record of heritage trees.
