We often hear the logic, as to how planting more trees in our cities and towns, increases the green cover in the country. The exercise may help humans in making a cleaner environment (atmosphere surrounding them), but it hardly benefits the wild animals. In other words, the planting of trees in our neighbourhoods must not be reasoned as having benefit for wild animals as well.
Why? As wild animals can never benefit from green patches in cities, towns and villages. Irrespective of the kind of trees humans plant in their surroundings and backyards. Animals need continuous stretch of trees, extending hundreds of miles, to survive.
Thus expanding cities by encroaching forests can never benefit the wild animals. No matter how green our cities become.
