Bodh Gaya (Bihar), July 18 (ANI): A team of Forest Research Institute (FRI) scientists inspected the ailing Bodhi tree here recently.
The team has been working with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to restore the trees.
Interacting with media persons, the head of forest pathology at FRI, N S K Harsh, informed, “We began this exercise in 2007 and we come here three to four times every year.”
He added that the main problem at the site was accumulation of water and its seepage into the roots.
“Water gets collected, because devotees come here and pour water. We want to make an outlet for water to come out,” he said. (ANI)
