Protect the 2,166 Trees in Cebu City
This petition had 207 supporters
To give way for the construction of Cebu Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, 2,166 Trees will be cut or moved along the 23-kilometer lane.
We are opposing the cutting and balling of tress, because trees improve the livability of our cities. We value our trees in our city for the following reasons:
1. Improvement of biodiversity
2. Improvement in air quality
3. Improvement of health and well-being
4. Protection from climate change
5. Protection from water runoff (flooding, etc.)
6. Protection from heat
2,166 trees can absorb about 47,159 kilograms of carbon dioxide per year and release enough oxygen back to support 4,332 persons in a year.
Cutting the 2,166 trees in the city of Cebu is not a sign of "development" nor it is the last option to give way to development.
