After cutting Pattaya Beach’s trees this summer, city workers were back at it again this month, removing coconuts and trimming branches.
Bunrung Buntaeng of the Engineering Department led nine workers and several trucks along Beach Road Nov. 19, removing foliage along the beachfront near Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
He said the trees have grown rapidly since their severe pruning in July and that ripened coconuts could pose a danger to tourists. He said the trimming also discourages rats from nesting on treetops.
The coconuts and trimmed branches were ground up and taken to a plant nursery on Chaiyapruek Soi 2.
