The Bacolod City Council has suggested the removal of center islands of trees along the streets of the Capitol Shopping Center to the City Engineer's Office. This move has been going on around the city. They are claiming that the removal will ease traffic congestion.

But the islands do not cause traffic congestion. Instead, the islands and trees:

- Prevent accidents
- Prevent traffic because of counter flow
- Provide beauty in the area
- Provide a refreshing sight
- Cleans and cools the air in the area
- Diminishes air pollution as oxygen is produced
- Provide space to keep the street lights safe

We SAY NO TO THE REMOVAL OF THE ISLANDS AND THE CUTTING OF TREES IN BACOLOD!

More Plants and Trees in Bacolod

Bacolod needs more plants and trees in commercial areas to lower the temperature, to provide fresh air, and to diminish flooding. Please help save our trees. Sign the petition. 

We also encourage business owners to provide space for a garden and if possible plant a tree. Building owners could also add rooftop gardens to help in cleaning the air. #GreenerBacolod
