The countryside makes up 40% of the land in Hong Kong. In contrast, there is only 20% of green coverage in the urban areas, which is relatively low due to a lack of green planning earlier. We are the first organisation to work on urban tree planting in Hong Kong. Our plan includes both horizontal and vertical greening, covering the planting of trees that are approximately three meters tall and various shrubs along pavements, central reservations, in schools and special facilities in the community.
Urban greening has numerous advantages. It can effectively regulate the micro-climate, lowering the temperature of the city. It helps to absorb air pollutants, providing cleaner air for the city. By adding touches of greenery to the densely populated urban landscape, the surrounding environment becomes more pleasant and enjoyable for its residents.
To enhance the urban ecosystem, we have specially selected native species from South China and Hong Kong to provide food and habitat for local small animals, birds, butterflies andother wildlife in the city.
