Every year I go up the mountain to plant
trees. I have been a goer, a volunteer, and one of the
participating groups. Tree planting is just a medium. More
importantly, it is to bring out the message behind.
The organizers arrange planting site, recruit
staff and nurture seedlings. The participating groups gather
together at the designated site and meet up with the staff.
Each participant brings up the allotted seedlings to the
mountain. Volunteers explain the planting procedures and then
Are there plenty of trees in Hong Kong? If
you are the organizer, you will realize the difficulties in
finding suitable locations for planting. If the place is still
a bald hill, transportation is a problem and it may also be not
suitable for cultivation geologically. The answer is that
trees are already planted wherever feasible.
