Trees’ ecological benefits outweigh economic value

This is in reaction to Ernesto T. Solidum’s letter titled “In the conflict over cutting of trees, there are three sides” (Opinion, 9/18/14). His opinion regarding Green Research’s serious objections to the cutting of centuries-old and natural heritage trees along the Pangasinan Manila North Road is “emotional,” while the rationale of the Department of Public Works and Highways favoring the act to prevent road accidents is “practical.”

In the conflict over cutting of trees, there are three sides

May I comment on the controversy surrounding the cutting of 1,050 trees along the 42-kilometer highway in Pangasinan by the Department of Public Works and Highways or its contractor on November 2013-February 2014. Serious objections were raised by Patricia Gwen Borcena, environmental activist and founding president of Green Research, on reasonable grounds that the felled trees were centuries-old and considered natural heritage. She said the next targets were 1,829 trees.

By

Environment Secretary Ramon Paje finally woke up and stopped the massacre of trees in road-widening projects—but only after thousands of mature trees have already been felled. As many as 1,059 trees have been cut in Pangasinan. More trees have been cut in Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Bataan, Laguna, Iloilo, and other areas. Indeed, there seems to be an indecent haste to cut as many trees as fast as possible in spite of protests by local residents and environmental groups. Any tree on the side of a road is in danger.
