Please save the dying trees at Jurong Park Connector

Please save the dying trees at Jurong Park Connector
These trees parallel to Jurong Town Hall Road near Block 113 is stricken with an unknown leaf disease, according to a STOMPer, and he hopes something would be done about it.

In an email to STOMP today (Mar 9), the STOMPer wrote:

"These pictures was taken at the Jurong Park Connector that runs alongside a canal that is parallel to Jurong Town Hall Road near Block 113.

"The shady green trees in that row are in the process of dying as they have been stricken by some unknown leaf disease. You can see 'bubbles' on the leaves and they really look pathetic.

"If NParks do not act fast, I fear the trees will not last till the end of this year. The residents here are sad to see the trees dying as they slowly turn 'botakb.

"The beautiful park connector runs alongside a canal. Many residents come here to walk in the morning and in the evening and it is a pity that nothing has been done to save the trees."
