It’s important to plant more local tree species to improve the biodiversity level of our woodland.
The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department has launched the Plantation Enrichment Programme in 2009. Since 2016, they have collaborated with non-profit organisations such as The Green Earth and corporations.
To help improve the sustainability of Hong Kong’s ecosystem, we focus on replacing old exotic species with a variety of local tree seedlings.
Although local trees don’t grow as quickly as exotic trees, they are more beneficial to the woodland’s ecosystem.
What are the benefits?
Let’s continue to strive for more footsteps.
You’ll find out the answer in Level 4 of the One Health woodland.

The health of people is interconnected and interdependent with the health of trees and the wider eco-system. We need to look after one another, whilst taking care of the environment.
From today till 31 July, The Green Earth, together with Bupa and our Bupa4Life members* will 'plant' a virtual One Health woodland for Hong Kong through a step challenge.
We aims to promote the concept of 'One Health' – the relationship between the health of humans and nature.
