“According to the expert, there is no problem with the tree and it is in perfect health,” says Luttgard Heifarts, a spokesperson for De Ideale Woning. So there is no immediate danger. A problem may only arise if the tree is pruned because it will then rot. For all these reasons, the expert advises not to prune or dig the tree. The perfect house follows the expert to his conclusion. This is also in line with the efforts of the Social Housing Corporation to be economical with the existing green spaces and environment.”
