About the Programme/Event

 

Mature trees are the natural heritage of Singapore and serve as important green landmarks of our tropical Garden City. These trees help us to identify with and stay rooted to the place we call home. They also take decades to mature gracefully and beautify our landscape. With Singapore’s rapid development, however, there is a danger of losing our national heritage to urbanisation. Follow speaker Dr Jennie Tang from NParks as she touches on the amazing benefits of trees and explains how the Heritage Tree Scheme advocates the conservation of mature trees.

 

This programme is suitable for those aged 50 and above.
