These photos were taken along our Jelutong Expressway, when I was on my way to the Speakers Corner @ the Esplanade (if you don’t already know, get off the Island!!!) to attend some free speech event.

The trees are dying and it was beyond me and my friend who rode in my car why they are being shaved, left ‘botak’ (bald) and miserable.

The bark has turned very dark, and when we asked the contractor why this is being done, he merely said: please don’t ask me, I have been instructed to do so…the usual reply.

There are at least 30-odd trees like that. Hey they are not blocking anyone, nor do we see them being potentials for accidents.

Sigh…so much for the 26mil tree-planting project by the government! Who’s gaining from it all? The trees don’t and neither do we.

M’sia launches campaign to plant 26 mil trees
Apr 22, 10 2:34pm
In commemorating Earth Day today, Malaysia launched a nationwide campaign to plant 26 million trees by 2014.

Natural Resources and Environment Minister Douglas Uggah Embas launched the campaign, carrying the theme ‘Green the Earth: One Citizen, One Tree’ in Putrajaya.

The 26 million trees represent the estimated 26 million population of the country.

Some 16,200 saplings were planted in launching the campaign, with 500 planted at a site in Precinct 5 opposite the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) in Putrajaya.

The other trees were planted at selected sites in Alor Star (Kedah), Kangar (Perlis), Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Seri Iskandar (Perak), Bachok (Kelantan), Kemaman (Terengganu), Pulau Melaka (Melaka), Seremban (Negeri Sembilan), Kulai (Johor), Temerloh (Pahang), Esplanade (Penang), Hulu Selangor (Selangor), Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) and Petra Jaya (Sarawak).

    “The bark has turned very dark,..”

    Sounds like an overuse of insecticide/pesticide. I had the same experience when I used water based aerosol insecticide on my plants.

    The “trees” could almost pass of as a variant of giant cactuses from New Mexico!

    What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
    Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
    You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
    A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
    And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
    And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
    There is shadow under this red rock,
    (Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
    And I will show you something different from either
    Your shadow at morning striding behind you
    Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
    I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

    “The former international trade and industry minister claimed that this anti-establishment culture among the young could be detrimental to society, especially if Malaysia wanted to achieve developed-nation status “in its own mould”.” – ex mouldy AP queen.

    Fine classic example of bumnoputrid perverse and inverted kok tok.

    The Sai-Full is a towering testament to the whole world that a healthy well built 24 year old Malusial man is incapable of fending off a small stature man in his sixties!

    You believe that and you can believe anything.

    Few years back Tun Mahathir did the “plant a million trees” project. Such a mockery cos less than a year later, those trees were gone, either bulldozed to make way for something or left to die! Such a wastage- not something new, throw away rakyats money.

    “The bark has turned very dark,..”

    Semi Value`s bark also turned very dark, they should call the contractors.
