Tree felling in Cape Town
Tabletalk Thursday, August 30 published an article and photographs about large trees that needed to be removed between Botasig and the motorway to make way for a new storm water system.
This time the culprit is the provincial administration.
In the past, every spring the parks department would start their tree trimming and spring-cleaning. There seem to be little sense in coinciding tree trimming with the bird-breeding season.
Now that there are so few trees left to trim, perhaps the time can be spent planting new trees instead.
Perhaps one organisation should be in control all tree felling. Requests to fell trees should go through this global interest organisation.
