What happened to this beautiful tree is really heartbreaking & sad :(
Thank you Zen for all your support and for sharing the pictures ot Jytte's precious Flamboyant tree in here. It devastates me when I see how cruel and irresponsible some people act towards nature and I find their lack of honesty & integrety also repugnant. Their actions will not be without consequences, coz' we all know that: 'As you sow so shall you reap'. I'm so sorry for the loss of your tree Jytte :(
Jytte's beautiful Flamboyant tree - destroyed by Big Business
What a tragic destruction by 'homo sapiens' for no apparent reason other than to 'prove' their strength against the 'man in the street' by desecrating our planet to satisfy their own 'want'? But Jytte has a beautiful 'tail end' to this story, hope for a possible new beginning which she shared today! It seems there might be 'light at the end of the tunnel'.
Thank you for exposing this dear Zen. We are in the process of broadcasting the information here in Mozambique via the website we have built about the case:
We also supply the organizations and the media with the link to these pictures. Hopefully the tree and we will get some justice.
Indeed, dear friends, this is sad and deeply disturbing for us to watch this magnificent tree being brutally cut down, just because it was in the way of a non-negotiable, uni-lateral plan of the management of the Electricity Company. The same happened with part of our bougainvillea hedge.
As you can see on other pictures, there was an owl couple living in that tree, and they have done so for years. Although we made the Management aware, they did not care the least.
Cutting trees is opposite the policy of the government in Mozambique, who promote growing new plants and trees every year. Hence, this public corporation seem not to care about the policy of their own President, neither about trees in general.
One cannot but to disrespect people who choose such brutal actions. It is like James Russell Lowell says, "I willingly confess to so great a partiality for trees as tempts me to respect a man in exact proportion to his respect for them."
