Floral focus on slope safety
     The Highways Department has launched the Enhancement Programme of Vegetated Slopes to replace Acacia confusa trees with various plant species.

     The trees were planted on roadside slopes across Hong Kong in the 1950s and '60s but are at the end of their lifespan.

     News.gov.hk interviewed the department and tree experts to learn about the risks posed by ageing trees and the scheme's benefits.

     The story appears on news.gov.hk today (August 20) in text and video format.
