Vellore District We, the members of OmSakthi Small Group of Dhurgam village, Vellore center, Vellore districts have 6,941 trees in our land. Now, during the rainy season, we are using 10 feet ladder to trim side branches upto 10 feet. Once the trees are trimmed to use the sunlight, we are practicing fodder for cattle in between the trees. We are receiving tree stipend from TIST continuously. Also, we are requesting other small group members to use such ladder to grow trees without unwanted branches and when there is no much shade in between the trees other short time crops can be practiced.
