One of its branches got infested by insects and is on saline drip as part of the rejuvenation. The tree is given treatment by injecting diluted chemical to kill termite population that infested it.
Termites had affected almost entire tree due to which parts of it are fallen, and it closed for tourists in December 2017.
District collector of Mahbubnagar inspected the tree and ordered forest officials to take care of it. They began the treatment of the tree with mixed chlorpyrifos(Pesticide) in saline bottle.
Forest officials are infusing the chemical solution drop by drop using saline bottles similar to a saline drip given to patients in the hospital as pumping of chemical into the stem failed. The solution was injected in the barks of the tree.Follow @gorkhapost
