No Real Roots, a project by photographer Quinn Lum Fu Loong, moves around the process and effects of crown reduction happening around Singapore.

“According to NParks, crown reduction is primarily carried out to reduce the weight of tree crowns and lower the center of gravity of tall trees,” he explains. “This process allows these trees to better withstand strong winds and rain, ultimately, reducing the risk of tree falls in the urban landscape of Singapore. These images demonstrate the swiftness and dedication of the authorities to leave any form of perceivable harm out of the equation in order to maintain the safety of its people. This then brings to question human’s innate need to change and control their environment while nature remains subservient to their demands.”
