Poplar plantations and nurseries mainly grown on farm land in North India create thick patches of green cover which attract wild animals, birds and rodents for hideout, shelter and food. Many of the visiting wildlife also cause serious damage to poplar both in field plantations and nurseries. The main wild animals and birds causing damage have been identified as blue bull, monkeys, rats, rabbits, crows, parrots etc.

Climate change and forests are intrinsically linked. On the one hand, changes in global climate are already stressing forests through higher mean annual temperatures, altered precipitation patterns and more frequent and extreme weather events. At the same time, forests and the wood they produce, trap and store CO2, play a major role in mitigating climate change.
