" Big trees must not be cut down in RPTRA development"

"Big trees must not be cut down in RPTRA development. So it must be according to layout presented," he stated, Monday (8/14).
According to him, waiting for the tree to grow into a big it takes a very long time. While on the island trees are needed for shelter and rain water absorption to make good water quality on the island.
"Principally there is no tree logging and good arrangement," he expressed.
