In Serious Need Of Cleanup[edit]

This is not my province of expertise, but this article needs thorough, statement-specific citation and removal of POV statements, peacock and weasel words. This group obviously deserves a better article: the term "tree hugger" is now widespread, and hugging or sitting in trees as a protest of logging is iconic of the environmental movement.

the redirect is fine but a cleanup is definetly needed, and a modern usage section written--69.110.129.127 02:27, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Chipko does not mean to embrace in Hindi. I can say that as a Hindi speaking person. The word chipko means to stick. They were not trying to embrace the trees but they were trying to stick to the trees. So that nobody pulls them off. That is why it was known as the chipko movement. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.167.24.98 (talk) 15:37, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Copyright Problem[edit]

I think an older revision of this article is from this webpage: http://www.american.edu/TED/chipko.htm It is a verbatim copy and I'm not sure if the site gives permission or not. Reverted anyway to a revision that is not controversial. --Tux.pngUkdragon37talkTux.png 15:36, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Suggestion to merge[edit]

I have removed the direct copy from the "International Institute for Sustainable Development" and rewritten the page, originally at Chipko. As such, I suggest merging this page with the Chipko page. Obviously more can written here, but that can be developed at a later date. All the salient issues are noted in the new, original text. Ceti 23:04, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

I second the motion to merge themStrumphs 13:29, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
I agree. The pages are largely similar, and there doesn't appear to be any major advantage of keeping the two as separate pages. Insertclevernamehere 21:20, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
I support merging them. There is really no discernable difference between the two.--DerRichter (talk) 21:33, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
I support merging them; at a quick skim, there's practically no difference between them. As though they were copied and pasted between each other. —Preceding unsigned comment added by fuck fueero Kirashami (talkcontribs) 00:44, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

I live in Louisville, Ky and have a neighbor who is insisting that I cut down a beautiful Ash tree in my backyard because he thinks it is going to die and fall on his property. The tree does have some storm damage, but looks great to me. I had an arborist look at it and he said it could last another 100 years. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Non-encyclopedic style and a factual error (?)[edit]

"the world immediately took notice of this non-violent movement"
The style is completely unencyclopedic.

"it created a precedent for non-violent protest started in India"
Weren't the Gandhi protests the first non-violent ones in India?--Adûnâi (talk) 10:41, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
