NEA fines man for cutting down tree on his own property

This is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard.

I read with incredulity in the Straits Times Forum page about a man being fined $6000 by NEA (National Environment Agency, Singapore) for cutting down a tree on his own property.

Even his own MP failed to convince NEA that its action was unwarranted.

Now I wonder whether trimming my overgrown hibiscus plants will attract any punitive measures. NEA might be watching me, you know.

This is giving me sleepless nights.

  1. Until the tree falls, then you’ll probably be fined a higher fee for causing all the hoo-ha in your own property.

    We never win, do we?

  2. No, we never win. I await NEA’s reply which would throw some light on this mystery. I have no doubt it has the law on its side.
