The Peñalosa administration has authorized the cutting of 34,000 trees, and more than 11,000 have already taken place. These actions are taking, a toll on Bogota´s wetlands and other parks in a city that needs three times the trees it has now. The scale of these actions is breathtaking. The trees that Mayor Peñalosa´s administration has authorized for removal would form a line between Bogota and Mexico City. Approximately 3,155 km could be covered if you put all the trees that have a death sentence in Bogotá next to the ones that have already been cut down.
