HCMC removes trees for bridge construction

During the first phase of the plan, 258 old trees along the section of Ton Duc Thang Street will be chopped or relocated to facilitate the construction of bridge Thu Thiem 2 which will span over the Saigon River and connect District 1 and District 2.
Those that are unhealthy will be chopped down to reduce risks for passer-by while their healthy ones will be grown at Nong Lam (Agriculture and Forestry) University in Thu Duc District.
The timber will be used to make tables, chairs, and wood sculptures for public service.
