    Isnt mahogany endangered? Whats more important, an ancient and iconic tree or some sidewalk or whatever it may be damaging? hope they relocate them.

    notice how bermudas heat has turned from paradise to hellish in the last 10 years? probably because all the flippant and wanton cutting down of trees and foliage.

    It has been widely acknowledged that one of the easiest things we can do to fight climate change is to plant trees. These not only suck up the carbon dioxide and give oxygen but they also provide much needed shade in the city, as well as providing a calming effect on humans as reminds us off the natural surroundings we have lived with for thousands of years instead of the concrete jungles we have now built that are alien to us. The world is about to get much hotter for future generations. We need to have a ‘net neutral’ policy whereby any trees removed are replaced like for like. Removing trees now is madness!
