Eaglenest Singchung & Tenga

Indi Glow

Indi Glow remembers that the Asian games opened up the flood gates for the commercial demand for timber in Arunachal Pradesh, plantation and afforestation measures were pale in comparison. He remembers that three quintals of Khasi pine (Pinus kesiya) seeds were aerially sprayed in the forests around Singchung and Tenga in 1981. Then there were smaller patches (35-75 hectares) (now in Ramalingam and the helipad area) of blue pine (Pinus wallichiana) and chir pine (Pinus roxburghii) plantations.
