Trees in the Way

Slovakia 11-14

The town of Nová Dubnica launched a complex reconstruction of the hot water distribution pipes in 2015. Due to reconstruction, kilometers of ditches were dug throughout the city which threatened the roots of the trees. The roots were often damaged by heavy machinery; some were literally torn from the ground and publicly tossed away.
