CDA also plans to plant 50,000 trees along the Bhara Kahu bypass. The agency’s environment wing is selecting plant specimens for the location. Although, some plant experts have pointed out that the trees will only help the environment if local birds can nest in the trees.

CDA has been engaged in reforestation after clearing up greenery due to several major projects. However, that approach has also garnered criticism with environmentalists stating that these projects are turning the ‘once green’ Islamabad into a concrete jungle.
