stop the cutting of trees along manila-north road in pampanga sign now

STOP THE CUTTING OF TREES ALONG MANILA-NORTH ROAD IN PAMPANGA!

There is now an on-going massacre of acacia and other trees along the manila north road on the justification that the cutting of these century old living, breathing creations of God will pave the way for progress and development.

We, are not against progress and development. but we believe there are alternative solutions without sacrificing these mute yet gentle creations which have provided us fresh air, natural shade....etc.

We dispute the following justifications for this massacre:

1. DPWH position Road widening on the existing four lanes is necessary in anticipation of a heavier volume of traffic in the future.

SAVE THE TREES COALITION position The existing four lane road from past Sindalan ( where trees have already been killed ) to Telabastagan is wide enough.

2. DPWH position Acacia trees pose a threat to motorists plying the Manila North road which justifies the removal of trees, to save one life is more important than the trees.

SAVE THE TREES COALITION position The Acacia Trees have been around for more than 50 years not an overnight monstrosity that appeared suddenly.

In most cases it is the driver under influence of alcohol/liquor or one who is reckless unmindful of road courtesy who poses the gravest threst to fellow motorists not the Acacia Trees.

3. DPWH position Will replace the trees at a ratio of 30 to one adult tree killed.

SAVE THE TREES COALITION position Aside from oxygen producers, the entire biochain lost in the same vicinity is irreplaceable no matter how many seedlings will be turned over to DENR nursery.

4. DPWH position The Acacia Trees cause damage to concrete pavements and obstruct the canals because of their deep rooting system, therefore causing flashflood during heavy rains

SAVE THE TREES COALITION position The common Acacia Tree absorb considerable amount of water through their efficient root system. Their deep roots survive through drought and famine from four to six months. Since it is a nitrogen-fixing tree it can be pruned or lopped as often as four times a year, thus eliminating the mentioned threat of falling branches to passing motorists.

The recent typhoons in 2009, Ondoy and Pepeng, have proven us right. Never in the history of Pampanga was there any flooding in the MacArthur highway stretch until they killed the trees. Video footages stand as evidence: Up to the point where the trees were killed was floodwater. Where the trees remained intact no sight of any floodwater despite the absence of man made canals

5. DPWH position Removal of the acacia trees will ease traffic congestion and will cut down travel time. it will accomodate the influx of motorists who are unable to afford the toll fees from the expressways.

SAVE THE TREES COALITION position The traffic congestion occurs because of lack of discipline among motorists. In the contested areas, there is never any turtle-pace nor standstill traffic at any given time. Strict implementation of existing traffic rules and regulations and presence of enforcers at critical points such as entrance/ exit to highly populated barangays both used as residential and industrial zones will ease the problem in traffic.
