Dear Station Members,

Thank you for waiting for our another session of Tree Education after the Chinese New Year & other society affairs.

We do this by deeds rather than words.

As for now, we have once again prepared for another popular session at a cost only good enough for genuine education & not for profit-making. We expect a full house again very soon, probably within hours. Please therefore book early to avoid disappointment.

Seminar Contents (provided by the Speaker):

Correct tree identification is important and fundamental to many tree management works. However, the occurrence of several hundreds of urban tree species in Hong Kong makes the entry to tree identification difficult. There is no short cut to it but you can do it in a more systematic way. In this seminar, the steps and skills of tree identification will be illustrated. The family or generic features of some common landscaping trees in Hong Kong will also be introduced.

About the Speakers (provided by the Speaker):

Dr. Angie Ng

BSc (Environmental Life Science)

PhD (Plant Ecology) - The University of Hong Kong

ISA Certified Arborist

ISA Tree Risk Assessor

The speaker has studied and worked on trees for more than a decade. The speaker initially specialized her research and interest in the growth characteristics of Hong Kong native plants but then extended her interest to urban trees. Plant identification has become both her job duty and hobby. In the past few years, the speaker had designed and delivered several tree identification courses to Government departments, private companies and other organizations. She is always happy to share her knowledge and experience in trees with those who are interested in understanding trees.
