Potential danger posed by old trees in TTDI


THANK you for highlighting the disasters happening due to climate change, strong winds and tropical storms in the StarMetro report, “Several trees toppled by strong winds in KL”

With climate change, society has to be vigilant about such incidents.

I would like to point out my concerns about trees around Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) especially along Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi and Jalan Aminuddin Baki.

The TTDI housing area was developed around the 1980s, and the trees along the roads there are now at least 40 years old.

If you drive and park along these roads, you will be concerned because some of the old trees are leaning towards the main road, while the roots of some are exposed.

Bad weather could potentially cause the trees to fall.

While it is nice to have trees growing along roads to provide shade, they must be properly maintained to ensure that accidents, such as trees falling, will not happen during a big storm.

Perhaps Kuala Lumpur City Hall will look into this and take the necessary action.

“Prevention is better than cure”.
