Casualty of Development

DPWH workers took down a tree to give way to the road improvement project. It’s just 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 smaller tree in the background was the one taken down.
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.
