Casualty of development

Another tree of ours has been taken down to give way to the road improvement project of the DPWH. It’s sad to see how the still growing mango tree planted by my late brother in law fell to the ground as workers cut the branches one by one.

What’s left of the tree
This is an old photo. The tree that was cut down was the smaller one at the background. This is the road undergoing improvement.

The road improvement has been stalled for several years now. It’s only this year that this project will be realized. But with improvement comes some sacrifices including the cutting of trees slightly blocking the road. From where the tree stood will give way to pipe laying.

The remaining mango tree. This is an old photo. It is taller and has more branches and leaves now.

Fortunately, one tree, which is bearing mangoes every year, is spared.

We are growing a Mango tree

I wrote about this young mango tree that my brother in law planted to replace a decade-old mango tree which was cut down over a year ago.

See how big it has grown…

Talisay sapling.

We are growing a new Talisay plant. The sapling in my previous post was eaten by one playful puppy named Oreo.

We hope to nurture these plants to adulthood.
