Show 'respect' for our trees ....

Early last month, some authority decided to whack all the trees along Persiaran Kewajiban (passing thru USJ and Subang Jaya). It's amazing over 1 night, all the trees were cut off, left with the bald tree trunks. We, the taxpayers, the residents, the people who enjoy the green views & shades, just couldn't comprehend why such action was carried out ???? I read a few angry comments reported in The Star, have yet to read the reply from the authority. Tonight, when I passed by at 11pm. Geeeee, another group of workers putting up the road block signs, and working on their 'cut' jobs AGAIN on another area.....GOSH, why ? Personally, I don't buy in to the general excuses:- termite problems, leaves falling down & need street cleaning, dangerous trees, even if so, just cut those affected trees, not ALL of them. Somehow, I buy in to the common reason people have been spreading - someone wants to claim OT, extra income, so working hard at night. First of all, why bother to implement plant landscape, left huge space besides the road - as walk path and plant trees. why not just tar it ? why spend money to buy or in some area, imported overseas trees, planted them, watered them for years, then one fine day, feel like changing the look - transformed into 'bodak look' ....The whole nice cool view is gone forever, it's just too rediculas. Just like the case on Shah Alam Bukit Cahaya's agricultural park - part of the gazetted park was whacked, what a silly joke this can happened. Now the recent one is the Kuala Selangor Fire Flies river ...aiii - I have another sad story to share on our heritage thingy - from a good local tour guide (she's as good as Habibi, she's knowledgable, and dare to challenge her visitors - just like Habibi) - shall blog that later.
