‘Forest Rescue’ saves city trees

MQDC’s The Forestias assembled a squad of experts to save trees at risk from Bangkok’s changing land use, relocating them to a safe new home at Bang Na.

The ‘Forest Rescue’ campaign called on the public in the second half of 2018 to report local trees at risk from the city’s development.

Acting on alerts to Facebook and Twitter, the team used a truck and specialist gear to carefully relocate threatened trees to a dedicated area of 1,600 sqm set at The Forestias.

The trees are now living healthily there, labeled with their original locations and owners so one-time neighbors can pass by to check on them.
