Chittagong Port cuts down giant age-old trees
Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) has chopped off four giant age-old trees in the CPA Monoharkhali Officers’ Residential Area at Sadarghat area of Chittagong city. The Dhaka Tribune correspondent visited the scene on Saturday and saw workers appointed by CPA cutting down the trees, which are presumably around 100 years old. Md Nasir, a contractor, told the Dhaka Tribune that the CPA assigned them to cut down the trees. Nasir said the roots of the giant trees were growing underneath the area’s boundary wall making it vulnerable and inducing risk of accidents.
