Are pretty clear. In my practice of thirty years I have noticed many of the problems you
have mentioned in Puerto Rico, with this tree and many others. The list will be too long.
However, mi criteria is that any tree, creating a mess in ANY urban context, should not be planted unless the owner has the money to pay for the clean up, or with lots of spare time
to sweep and pick up the organic garbage.
However, LAWNS create much wider problems of water waste, organic waste, pollution with herbicides,
insecticides, fertilizers, fungicides, trimmers, blowers and lawn mowers, in addition
to the infernal NOISE, particularly in GOLF
courses, however no one complaints about it. Not even the worried segment of the population about global warming. Even if using a lawnmower for an hour is just like driving for twenty miles, in terms of pollution.
USA and the world should start a policy of no LAWNS, in every possible context. Except
for playing grounds. After all I do not see the beauty of an ocean of turf, I only perceive
the pollution and damage to flora and fauna everywhere.
