The construction workers saw a big tree with a height of more than 10 meters to the ground, and the ground was covered with branches.

questioned the violent tree cutting in the community. After 8:00 a.m. on August 27, Ms. Li, who was cleaning her home, suddenly heard the harsh sound of a chainsaw outside the window. She went to the balcony and looked out. Several construction workers were cutting branches with electric saws. At first, she thought it was just ordinary pruning, and she didn’t care.

at noon, when Ms. Li went downstairs to throw garbage, she was startled by the scene in front of her: “dozens of originally thick trees were razed to the ground in a flash, leaving only 10 cm high stumps!”

dozens of big trees were razed to the ground.

then, Ms. Li went to the nearby building to have a look. She saw a warning line at the edge of the green belt with a piece of white paper, which said “tree pruning, no parking”. The construction workers were cutting down other trees. After some inquiry, Ms. Li learned that it was the community to carry out the transformation, cutting down the trees to transform into parking spaces and planting other plants.

and

do not agree with the behavior of tree cutting in the community. She said that these trees have been planted for more than ten or twenty years. They are tall and dense, and there are birds singing in the early morning. The environment is very pleasant. It’s a pity to be razed to the ground now.

and

are heartbroken. At the same time, Ms. Li also questioned why there was no notice about the fact that dozens of trees had been cut down, and had the permission of relevant departments?

industry committee explained:

old community transformation

tree cutting in order to eliminate security risks and other

subsequently, Red Star News reporter came to Chenggang new community. This is an old community built in the 1990s, many buildings have been repainted with white walls, very clean and tidy. After passing through the unit building on the left of the gate, a large garbage truck stopped by the side of the road. Green belts and roads are filled with fallen branches and workers are transferring.

and

walk in and have a look. The trees in the green belt are only stumps. As you go deeper, more areas are being cut down, and workers are using electric saws to cut down trees. Reporters at the scene at the beginning of the number, about 30 have been cut down, all only 10 cm high stumps.

↑ after the trees were cut down, only stumps were left.

in addition, there is a “surviving” area on the site, which has not been cut down, but has been put on a warning line. These trees are about four or five stories tall, and their leaves block the hot sun. It’s cool to stand under them. Why should

and

cut down a lot of trees? Is there any legal procedure for tree cutting? With doubt, the Red Star News reporter contacted Wang Hongzhi, deputy director of the community industry committee, through the bulletin board information in the community bulletin board, who introduced the relevant situation.

and

Wang Hongzhi said that the residential area was built in the 1990s. With the improvement of living standards, the supporting environment of the community can not keep up. One of the most prominent problems is the difficulty of parking, and the other is that the trees are too tall and dense, and there are potential safety hazards.

“trees are more than 10 meters high, and some wires are still entangled in the branches, which is very dangerous, and once injured residents.” Some residents told reporters that these trees are too dense, not only to block the light, leading to low-rise residents dark and humid, and wind and rain lead to broken branches, easy to crush people, there are many hidden dangers. Some residents said that the fallen leaves and fruits were all over the ground, which affected the environment and health, and they very much wanted to be trimmed.

and

therefore, after soliciting the opinions of the owners of the residential area, the industry committee started the old residential area renovation project last year through a series of application, publicity, approval and other processes. “The group is expected to cut down 100 trees, convert them into parking spaces and replant low growing plants.” Wang Hongzhi said that there are design plans for the whole renovation, including which places should be cut down, where green plants should be planted and pavilions should be built. All these have gone through the process and have been approved.

and

however, when the reporter asked to check the publicity and approval materials related to the pruning or tree cutting of the transformation project, the director of the industry committee said that all the information had been handed in and had not been kept, so it could not be provided. “Our family ran, signed and sealed the fingerprints, and consulted the owners.”

and

in this regard, the Red Star News reporter asked the community of Qingjiang road in Dawan street for confirmation. The Secretary of the community said that the situation was basically consistent with that of the industry committee, and the process of community reconstruction and felling had gone through, and the case had been filed. Investigation by relevant departments of

it is understood that according to the “Chengdu residential quarter Landscaping Management Regulations”, residential quarter greening should ensure building safety, adhere to the principle of unity and coordination of landscape, ecology and safety, and comprehensively consider the factors such as sunshine, daylighting, ventilation, traffic, etc., and those that can be pruned shall not be transplanted; those that can be transplanted shall not be cut down. No unit or individual is allowed to transplant or cut down trees in the green space of residential quarters, occupy the green space of residential quarters without authorization, and shall not damage the topography, water body and vegetation of the green space of residential quarters. In the aspect of tree pruning,

If it is necessary to cut down trees due to death, endangering public safety, occurrence of quarantine diseases and insect pests or other serious diseases and insect pests, the trees shall be reported to the competent department of landscaping for approval in accordance with the regulations of Chengdu Municipality on landscaping.

so is there any legal procedure for tree cutting in this community? Then, the Red Star News reporter contacted the park city construction center of Qingbaijiang District, Chengdu City. The staff of the center responded: “it is very responsible to say that we have never received the relevant information about tree cutting record in Chenggang new community.”

later, the reporter followed the center, Dawan Street office, comprehensive law enforcement squadron and other personnel to the scene to check, the trees left more than 10 cm high stumps, “this is not called pruning, it is cutting down, we can not agree with it.” Chengdu Qingbaijiang District Park City Construction Center staff said that according to the regulations, the pruning scheme needs to be publicized for tree pruning in the community, which can be approved by half of the owners; if the trees are transplanted, the pruning requirements are the same as those of pruning out of the community; if the trees are cut down, they need to submit the relevant application materials to the park city construction center of the district The preliminary review opinions shall be submitted to Chengdu Park City Construction Administration Bureau for filing. “From last year to now, we have never received any information about the felling of trees in the community, and there is no record of logging.”

and

after preliminary investigation, the relevant law enforcement personnel stopped the construction personnel who were cutting down trees. As the community industry committee can not produce relevant publicity, filing and other information on the scene, the community responsible person can not arrive temporarily due to the incident, and the relevant situation needs further investigation.

↑ the law enforcement officers stopped logging at the scene.
