路人丁的抉擇

石栗的困境

Choice of Passer-by “D”

- The Dilemma of Candlenut tree (Aleurites moluccana)

2009年尾一場巨風把在旺角花墟的一棵音叉形雙枝幹的石栗打斷了,只餘下一枝幹,形成一個不平衡的樹冠,稍後官方以鋼纜將餘下枝幹穩定下來,暫時解決了樹傾斜的問題.

餘下的枝幹葉片集中在尾端,成為極差的"獅子尾"現象.樹幹的分叉位置會受到很大壓力成為全樹的弱點,病害和折斷都容易出現.

原先音叉形樹形已有結構上的問題,現在斷了一節,傾斜向民居的樹木更構成危險.樹木的作用是美化和綠化環境,不能冠以保育,或官大人喜好而強行保留有危險的樹木.

There was a cyclone end of last year (2009) and a tuning-fork shaped twin-trunk Candlenut tree at Flower Market in Mongkok was damaged.  Only one trunk was left forming an unbalanced crown.  Subsequently, the government authority tried to stabilize the remaining trunk with a steel cable.  The issue of inclination was tentatively resolved.

The remaining foliage mainly concentrates at the branch ends which form a "lion’s tail". It puts the tree in a very bad situation.  The crotch will exert great pressure and becomes the Achilles’ heel of the whole tree.  The tree is prone to disease and break.

The original tuning fork-shaped is already a structural defect.  With a broken trunk, the tree tilts and poses more threat to the safety of the residents.  Trees are used to embellish and green our environment.  We should not be obliged to keep those hazardous trees just by labeling them as a gesture of “conservation” or to the preference (ignorance??) of the government officials.
