Help to remove Exotic species of Vandalur RF



The below plants are planted along pedestrian path and along roadside, inside the Zoo(RF is taken to provide an environment for fauna): 


Exotic Invasive plants:

1. Spathodea campunlata (My comments:will easily enter the forest. It is already naturalized and entered even my garden...)

2. Tabebuia rosea (My comments:-not even shade tree at Summer.)

3. Mahagony came (My comments:here from Africa for timber...)

4. Markamia lutea

5. Cordia sebastiana

6. Simarouba glouca

7. Terminalia cadappa  

More than 200 trees are planted.

Any Botanists, possible to provide a signed certificate or letter that the above species should not be in a forest.
