An observation on such an effort in the state of Haryana is visualized from 2018-2020, which showed ecologically jeopardizing the pervasiveness of some important endemic vegetation like Salvadora oleoides a tree of greatest economic significance. The species is on the verge of decline in the state, where only 3.62% forest area surrounds the state geographical area of 44,212 km2 . This viewpoint highlights wounded and exposed root zones of S. oleoides causes deterioration due to one of the key developmental activities, i.e., the construction of roads and the expansions of rural, state and national highways.
