Expert Answer:

Mr. Sunderlal Bahugana was the pioneer of Chipko movement.  The Chipko Andolan also called the ‘Hug the trees movement’ was organized to stop the destruction of forests. It describes that how much village people love and hug to the trees. It is most important for the villagers to save the trees from felling. It interposes their bodies between them and the contractor's axes.
