The plants are used in making medicines for curing various diseases including diabetes and asthma.
Haldwani Forest Research Center, in-charge Madan Singh Bisht, said that according to a research, it is useful to create a contagious drug to cure deadly diseases such as dementia asthma.
"The specialty of all these cylindrical plants is that they all play a very important role in biodiversity. However, in Uttarakhand, more than 70percent of the vegetation is proving to be a boon for biodiversity besides medicines, which has become very important in view of their protection. It should be expected that the forest research will bring a plan to preserve the extinct species of Haldwani's celestial plants," Bisht added. (ANI)
