This venerable old tree along Eu Tong Sen street has borne witness to great changes in the area over the years. STOMPer Fire Phoenix hopes that the authorities will spare it for many more to come.
Here's what the STOMPer had to say:
"I passed by Eu Tong Sen Street and saw that workers were cutting the branches of this old tree at the corner of the former CID compound.
"The tree had grown to embrace the iron fence and workers were chipping the trees's branches and leaves from the fence.
"I hope they were just trimming the tree and not cutting it down."
