Following on from last week’s update from City Managment regarding the trees affected by Typhhon Mangkhut, workers across DB have been continuing their efforts to try and reinstate damaged trees where possible.
The latest news is that after inspection, around half of the fallen trees have been found to be too badly affected to be safely replanted and therefore need to be removed.
City Management has advised that it plans to recycle these trees and reuse the materials for other purposes. The trees will therefore be shipped to the nursery for further handling. The process is expected to take around one month.
Over 1,000 trees fell in DB during Typhoon Mangkhut, officially the strongest storm so far in 2018, which battered Hong Kong on Sunday September 16.Tags: Mangkhut, trees, Typhoon, weather
