The trees at Yew Tee Point were chopped down and thrown away after several Pasar Malams in the area and STOMPer Ang Kong Kia says that Hong Kah Town Council deserved an F-minus performance rating for doing that.
In an email to STOMP today (June 13), the STOMPer wrote:
"The trees were stressed by the often month-long Pasar Malams over the years.
"One of them was dead after the recent month-long Pasar Malam as the heat from the food stall operating near it probably expedite its death as there was no watering of the trees or and the tress were deprived of rain water during the entire duration of the Pasar Malam.
"They set up a stage for Labour Day celebration on the space vacated by the dead tree.
"Someone must have come up with the brilliant idea to chop off the trees to make space for community events 'for the benefits of the residents'.
"The least they could do was to transplant the precious trees to other space in the estate or sell the trees ($2000 each) and use the money for worthy cause.
"Under the newly proposed rating of the performance of the town council, I would give them F-!"
