In Hong Kong more than 400 species of trees can be found. They nurture countless other plants and animals, and are crucial components of the intimate relationships among the physical environment, ecosystems and our life.
“Trees and Us” School Talks Programme toured secondary schools in different districts to discuss various urban tree conservation issues with students. We focused on Hong Kong’s situation, introducing the principle of urban tree planting in Hong Kong. Case studies such as the King Banyan in Kowloon Park and Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree were used to investigate the relationship and conflicts between urban development and tree conservation. The programme has toured over 80 secondary schools.
