    Municipalities in sri lanka attend the matters only if they were looked after very well.

    SRI LANKA must be the only country where, STILL, falling wayside trees in the CAPITAL City itself, KILL Citicens and leave them injured for LIFE and then..... with Buildings YET not accessible even using External aids, is thrusted to a World of Exclusion and Discrimination with NO Compensations nor Insurance Coverage. I SPEAK with my own Tragedy at Thummula Junction Bullers Road years ago and STILL..... this tragedy continues to happen often!!

    They enjoy enough perks but they want more and more for no work. See Kotte recently - what a sad scene for youngsters.

    The local councils should periodically assess the danger and prune trees to balance the branches and tilts. This is done in Singapore regularly.

    Our local council members are more interested in pleasure trips to Bangkokinstead of looking into these things.High time to change the culture. What a disgrace !

    Dr.Perera, you should start reading international news papers to broaden your knowledge. Just Google and check how many trees have fallen and injured people in Hong Kong, a city that is well managed. In the last 12 months alone couple of trees have fallen causing fatalities.

    Municipal councils are not fortune tellers. They cannot predict when a tree will fall.
