Ode to the Trees of Commonwealth Avenue

For us living north of Metro Manila, the construction of the MRT-7 is a dream come true.  Finally, we’re making progress!  But this progress comes at a huge cost: the trees of Commonwealth Avenue.

One of the last remaining trees along Commonwealth Ave. (taken August 05, 2017).
It won’t be long until all of them are removed for good. 😥

It breaks my heart to see all these beautiful trees go.  It’s just a matter of time before all of them are gone from the center of Commonwealth Ave.  Hopefully, the firm handling the construction stay true to their words and relocate most, if not all, of the trees there.  The ones I saw were cut near the roots so I have my doubts.  I really wish that those big property developers adopt some of the trees that can still be salvaged.

To the trees of Commonwealth Ave., thank you for giving us oxygen to breathe, shade from the heat, and help in reducing air pollution all these years!  May all that have been replanted elsewhere survive.
