A tree to stop the traffic road

Data / date: 16/07/11 2 Comentarios / Comments

It is an oak tree and has between 700 and 800 years. It had recently gained the status of monumental tree, entitled to protection granted by an official commission. To achieve this, the inhabitants of a Turkey Aegean village took to the streets to protest against the felling of the tree.

Kadkikoy citizens and environmentalists began to stand guard around the oak tree to keep it from being chopped down  as part of the construction of the Salihil Denizli highway.

Salih Atlamaz Budan head of the Budan Association for the Protection of Natural Life and Culture made the question that justifies  protest’s success:

The road can go through anywhere, but how many trees are there around  that  are  800 years old?

And so, road construction should pass by  for another location  and Kadikoy’s residents will continue to have their oak shadow.
