Why Kill A Tree Like This?

We kill trees all the time. Some of us might need the wood or the bark or the fruit or leaves or  we might need the right of way where the tree is standing. We can kill it by neglect or lack of water or manure. But the worst and the most lamentable  way we can kill a tree is by throwing  Amar Bel on it. Amar bel looks harmless enough. Just a green string of vegetation. But it is a parasite to a healthy tree. Soon it will start spreading. It will become so that you will see only the green strings of Amar Bel only and not the branches or leaves of the trees. And soon enough a fully grown tree will be strangulated to death. Once it is  thrown on a tree it is practically impossible to get rid of it. If you are trying to save a tree by removing Amar Bel and the affected branches you should burn the vegetation so removed.  You can see this infamous parasite  on the hedge in Karpoor Chand Kulish Garden,  on some trees on Prithviraj Road and on Sardar Patel Road.
