KL trees are falling down, falling down...

I LOVE tree-lined roads. They are usually lovely to look at and offer welcome shade to pedestrians and motorists.

In my town of Petaling Jaya, a few roads stand out for me because of that. Roads like Jalan Universiti (renamed Jalan Prof Diraja Ungku Aziz) and Jalan Templer. Closer to home is Jalan SS4A/1 that, until very recently, had enormous trees that made the pavement leading from the Taman Bahagia LRT station a pleasant walk home.
