Katipunan's center island

Katipunan Avenue's center island fronting Ateneo have been narrowed down to widen the main road. To do so means moving the young acacia trees planted at the center and relocating the Meralco posts at the remaining slim space.

In the past, the natural 1st step is to cut down the trees without regard for ecological balance. This time, they were balled out of the original location and transplanted at the center. They had burned barks showing they underwent some processing making them look dead.

Recently, small green leaves have been sprouting out of the fragile branches increasing in number by the day.

While timed for the school opening, it seemed like it was scheduled this Easter. As symbolically, the greens in burned branches projected hope, which during this time is a badly needed virtue.
