Tree Falls

The past few days of bad weather has taken its toll on our park trees.


I was quite dismayed when I saw several uprooted trees in Punggol Park as I embarked on my weekend plant photography trip. Above is a Dalbergia oliveri which have been on that spot for many years, till now.


This uprooted tree, Tabebuia rosea is being sawing into pieces by the contractors for disposal. Another tree with a mistletoe growing on it at face-level had its trunk snapped. I have been waiting for the parasitic plant to flower and fruits so that I can collect their photographs, but it is likely that the tree will be removed after this incident.

Its such a pity that these greenery which have been part of the park landscape for so many years is gone.
