Seven mature trees have been inexplicably cut down in the last two weeks on Jesselton Road and Brook Road n Penang Island.
One possible reason is that the trees were cut down to make way for drains, one of the residents surmised. If that is the case, surely the good folk at MBPP can put on their thinking caps and come up with a way to construct the drains without having to sacrifice these majestic trees.
In the picture above, the raintree standing is actually one that had been relocated from a property development project site to the road verge.
If you look closely, you can see a lagerstroemia tree horizontal on the ground behind the AWAS sign.
Sad to see such beautiful trees vanishing just like that.
MBPP, please clarify, why did those tree have to go?
