Fence protection for pine forest

2013-06-04 12
I think one of the sources that keep Kodaikanal always cool is the pine trees. The chillness will embrace if we enter the pine forest or plantations that spread around Kodaikanal and the photos here were shot on the way to Mannavanur - on the outskirt of Kodaikanal.

Pine forest in Kodaikanal is a famous tourist, as well shooting spot for filmmakers, but except that one particular spot, pine trees are scattered throughout the way if you keep travelling beyond the Lake town, either taking the Pillar Rock Rd or Observatory Rd.

In my initial travels to Kodaikanal, pine forests don’t have fences or guards to preserve or prevent these spots being spoiled by tourist throwing away trashes. But glad the forest department has come up with chain link fences, in latter years, at many parts of the pine forest area where there are chances for misusing the environment which will lead to harm the wild animals.

If fencing the pine forest helps to protect the habitat and environment, it is a good fence. Have a happy day!

I love that pine forest!

There are lots of pines there for sure. They seem to be planted very close together. It's nice the fence is there to keep out trash and people who might destroy the beauty of the forest.

This place looks magical and the fence sounds like a helpful idea too.

I guess the area is good for pines. I didn't think you would have terrain for that but I don't know that much about all of your very large country. I am glad the fence keeps the trashers out of there. Great photos.

Have a Wonderful Day, Jeevan!

Seems such a shame that fences are needed to keep the park clean but people everywhere are very messy!

Good that they have fenced the area and as you said that the animals and other living things will be safe from us bad humans.

I love pine trees and had a lovely memorable experience. I was in Japan last spring and had to wait outside the Imperial Palace's gate to be opened for tourists. I sat on the benches inside the pine woods with my wife and friends. We spent 2 hours inside and the pined fresh air was awesome.
