When Bengaluru was truly the garden city, it was lined with Gundu Thoppus, small mini forests, giving life to birds and insects and capable of small-scale production of forest products. However, since they are located near water bodies, Gundu Thoppus have become victims of commercialization and concretization.
Gundu Thoppus are breeding grounds for flora and fauna and help regulate the climate of its surroundings, keeping the temperatures low. These spaces have been converted into buildings and commercial spaces, removing their ecological functions altogether.
7 Trees For Life aims to convert small arid pieces of land and rejuvenate them into Gundu Thoppus. Bringing back Gundu Thoppus will not only clean the air around it but also foster the growth of flora and fauna.
