I have not edited this video or tried to dramatise it with special effects .This is the sad state of affairs in our country today ( 24 Feb 18 ) and it just looks set to get worse unless we have a Minister of Common Sense in our Cabinet . 18 of these majestic trees that line bukit batok west avenue 3 were uprooted to make way for building more HDB flats in 2016 (which I have documented on Youtube). Now, more of them are sadly being uprooted again, & residents like me have no clue as to why. These trees have an appearance which many mistake to be unhealthy but they are strong, can outlive many generations and survive some of the toughest conditions.
The first sign a tree is sick is when it loses its foliage, but as you can see in the footage, the trees have healthy foliage . The base of the trees which have been cut are bright & strong . There are no signs of decay in any of the cut trunks from the largest to the smallest branches. They are in tip top condition. These majestic trees which have been here for at least 30 + years are breathtaking to look at – but what is most important is that in terms of impacts on our health, trees in urban areas are substantially more important than rural trees due to their proximity to people . A very large study in Toronto showed that an additional 11 trees along a neighborhood street improves health in a way comparable to “being 1.4 years younger.” It is the opposite over here – we face a double whammy . We are being suffocated by the eradication of our country side & have not much option but to spend time in fake, superficial amenities like malls, indoor & outdoor playgrounds that are made of material which emit harmful chemicals for us & our children . Is it any wonder why the authorities need to build more hospitals as singaporeans continue to be afflicted with all types of diseases and at a younger age too. Trees such as these must be removed only if there is a compelling reason to do so ……pls STOP the Tree Cutting Campaign in Singapore.
