Preserving our Majestic and Poetic Trees

A letter writer, in an article captioned “Mutilation of a magnificent silk-cotton tree”, published in the October 6th edition of a section of the media, spoke very beautifully and emotively about the magnificence of the silk-cotton tree.

These ancient trees have a way of disseminating wisdom and inspiration to artists, philosophers, spiritualists, and those in meditation. They have been standing in their magnificent posture — like giants gazing into the sun and moon — for hundreds of years of Man’s civilization. They probably were there even before the commencement of the City of Georgetown.

Many more trees like this one have been destroyed throughout the country, and it is painful that we do not have a society controlled by a Government Ministry to watch over these trees that provide the aesthetics, inspiration, philosophy and wisdom to children and to life.
