Traffic islands, tree trunks, median strips, bicycle path accompanying green and many other public places are visited by the green space office in all regularity, regardless of the season (including animal-protection periods) by the cities nature-removal command (so called Grünflächenamt). In doing so, every bush and often every blade of grass is destroyed, so that throughout the city center there is a picture of devastation instead of blooming meadows.
A request to the responsible green space office was answered inadequately, so I hope to get a hearing for the problem through this petition.
Ever hotter cities need more and more nature to lower the temperatures! Likewise, the city is an important biodiversity area that needs to be protected. In addition, every single plant filters pollutants from the air and produces valuable oxygen. In times when green roofs and planted bus shelters for bees are celebrated as an absolute novelty, the most obvious flora, namely those in public foot traffic and public transport, should in principle be protected and not destroyed.
