Last year November the Minister of the Environment the Hon. Earl Deveaux received a donation of 100 seagrape trees from Rock Farms Nursery for the beautification of Zone #1 of the Department of Environmental Health’s Beautification Programme.
The trees were planted on Yamacraw Beach Road. Pictured from left are Minister Deveaux and Rock Farms Nursery Manager, Bruce Pinder.
Bahamas Press, however, was in the area over the weekend and having a photographic memory we asked ourselves, how is it the Dr. of the Environment and an experienced nursery manager did not know the trees would have died so quickly?
Take a look at the before and now after picture and ask yourselves this, why was not the right trees planted here? And what do you think was given in return for these plants? Nine months later and everything planted like a kiss of death has died.
Each and every one of the seagrape trees planted by Earl Deveaux nine months ago on the waterfront in the east have withered and died. What does that tell you about the hands of the environment doctor?
