PJ Council inspecting trees at risk of falling in Pusat Bandar 52 and Jalan Selangor

PETALING JAYA: The Petaling Jaya City Council is analysing trees at risk of falling in two areas, says Petaling Jaya MP Lee Chean Chung.

"Following my statement last week where I suggested to the local council to have a 'tree doctor' or arborist inspect all old trees in Petaling Jaya, I have been informed that the council have started analysing trees at risk along protocol roads in Pusat Bandar 52 and Jalan Selangor.

"Preliminary inspections are critical to ensure that the people's lives and properties are protected before it is too late," said Lee on his Facebook page on Sunday (May 26).

He added that he and his team were at the Taman Perangsang Flaton on Sunday to inspect the damage from a dislodged roof and will continue assisting victims affected by Saturday’s (May 25) storm.

On Saturday, an afternoon storm led to several fallen trees within the Klang Valley, with some crashing onto cars and blocking access roads.
