Ibis HOA wants to remove 168 oak trees
by Andrew Abramson
Al Vazquez, chairman of West Palm Beach’s Green Task Force, wishes his neighborhood had the same luscious oak trees that line the streets in Ibis, an upscale West Palm community west of I-95 off Northlake Boulevard. So Vazquez was stunned to learn that Ibis officials were planning to remove 168 oak trees and replace them with palm trees.
“We should be so lucky,” Vazquez said. “What these people want to be removed is just insane.”

Remove that canopy of trees and the folks in that subdivision will watch their air conditioning bills double or triple. Palms of any kind cannot provide the shade and cooling an oak can.
Sounds like realtors at work here. Nothing costs tax payers more than realtors, road builders and developers trying to make a buck.
And who would vote for a candidate dumb enough to buy a home in a swamp, which is what all of those western neighborhoods were just a handful of years ago.
