With the changing seasons these evergreen trees always add charm and continue to succour the ecology and biodiversity. Besides, they also help towards conservation of soil and water. But during recent years I have observed deteriorated ecological condition of these beautiful trees in Mussoorie and adjacent areas. The rapid urbanisation and expansion of the cities is paving way for ecological as well as habitat degradation and the adjacent forests and environment are facing challenges. Alongwith the huge influx of tourists, garbage littering has always been a major issue in the hillside.
