In Dharamsala region, Tibetans cloth flags are hanging everywhere, many Deodar trees are using for it. It is widely known that tying of cloth flags on trees retards their growth and might ultimately lead to their drying; therefore such thing is also dangerous for our green cover as well.

High Court may help Dharamsala and other Tibetan occupied region on environment front and many trees might be rescued from such rituals in the near future.
