Massive trees felled to power rice mill (Pics) Featured

A large number of massive trees along the Hurigaswewa - Meegalewa road in Thambutthegama, have been felled to provide power to a privately owned rice mill, reports say.

Residents of the area say that the trees have been felled under the guise of installing high voltage power lines.

It is said that around 70 massive Kumbuk and Maara trees have been felled in this manner.

However, reports say that there had been plenty of room to install the power lines without harming the trees.
