The temple in Nonthaburi province has agreed not to cut down the dead Dipterocarpus alatus trees on its premises after Alexandrine parakeet nests were discovered there.

The unusual finding became known after photos were posted on the Facebook page of a biology lecturer from the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Silpakorn University.

The temple's abbot stated that the trees had died over 10 years ago, and their branches occasionally fell, causing damage to property.

During a meeting attended by government representatives, monks, and environmental advocates, a decision was made to postpone the tree-cutting plan until at least April of next year, until the chicks have grown and left their nests.
