STOMPer Explorer says this tree could have fallen due to bad weather or due to its roots being attacked by termites.
In an email to STOMP today (June 23), the STOMPer says:
"This is a beaten track which runs by the side of the Cycle and Carriage factory and it runs from Pandan Loop to the Sungei Pandan. Beside this track is a long canal.
"A big tree has crashed and ripped open the railings on the side of the canal.
"It could have fallen due to stormy weather or because of a weak base when the roots were attacked by white ants."
