i am just as sad as well whenever I see this happen. Trees were cut down in many areas too due to the new mrt circle line. you are brave to sit there but don't endanger yourself. solutions to the problem? public education and awareness. @iPad
What I am doing is not endangering directly on my life. It endangers my job because i am in this industry. The contractor on site will hate me, town management will list me under...
My industry is small. Everyone can be my customer. What I am doing clearly affected my name in this business. I may lose my job but I want to do some change in Singapore. I am sorry for those that are in this industry that I had put so much trouble in.
What I am doing now has affected everyone’s relationship in the industry.
I am not looking into the technical part on why that 2 trees at my estate has been crown reduced. I am looking at the 3 main points I mentioned on the posting below, especially point number #3.
I noticed that when I talk to fellow industry people about this matter, they discuss to me about very technical things. Some agree and some may have extra ideas on it. Tree maintenance is a balance between science and art. Some may find that doing it this way is good and the others on their way. Both methods served the same IMMEDIATE solutions.
But it may not be correct because those trees at this website origin are not the same as in Singapore.
Many of our industry players do not see the big picture. Their big picture is limited to their business and earnings.
That’s why I am sad.
Trees don’t tell lie, only human do.
Trees will need to make way for human’s better standard of living, example: introduction of building structures.
When it comes with comparison on a human life and a tree, of course… we do not need to mention... you know the answer.
Here is a picture I took during my round the world trip. It’s extracted from a book and I found it meaningful. Bottom of my heart, I would like to share it with all of you.
wait, it's not finished. just after i posted this, i went to the same coffee shop to have my lunch, i notice that the owner of the coffeeshop has a few large potted plants standing on the grass. 2 pots of bamboo and 2 pots of Juniperus.
The bamboo stands about more than 5 meters tall. top of the bamboo is always shaking because of the minor breeze. i ask myself: there isn't much wind right now. what if there are sudden wind speed approach, as described by those 'expert' that broke the trees? why didn't the coffeeshop owner cut the bamboo down, do the same 'crown reduction' as the trees i mentioned? then the wind will not topple these potted plants. then i move on and take a closer look:
He is a genius!
