A couple of months ago, the city commissioned that the trees lining one of the busy streets in Changping be removed. I had hoped that they were removed to make way for 1.) a different landscape, 2.) better roads, 3.) any reason at all, but it looks like my hopes were in vain. It’s been almost two months now, and our street still looks like that ^^^.

I’m still holding onto hope that they have plans for this road. In all seriousness it was already depressing, and now even more so since the trees were removed.
