政府對石牆樹的管理 Management of Stonewall Trees by the Government
根據發展局的樹木登記冊中顯示,現時有309棵石牆樹生長於政府土地上。它們多數位於人煙稠密的市區,令公眾十分關注政府對這些石牆樹的管理,以確保它們健康生長和維持樹木的穩定性。

為此,香港園境師學會和香港工程師學會成立了聯合專責小組,檢討香港政府的石牆樹管理機制。小組檢視了發展局發布的樹木管理指引及相關立法會文件,並訪問相關持份者,深入了解政府管理石牆樹的運作。

聯合專責小組注意到現行石牆樹風險評估指引,主要集中於評估樹木的生長狀況,並沒有全面評估石牆樹的穩定性。此外,公眾對防止石牆樹倒塌措施的接受程度不高。

聯合專責小組對政府提出以下建議:

(一)
(二)
(三)
(四)
(五)
透過公眾教育,提高市民對石牆樹風險的意識和緩減樹木倒塌風險措施的接受程度。
推動樹藝、園境和工程專業之間的合作,進行針對石牆樹安全的技術研發工作。
完善樹木護養指引,以加強石牆樹的安全。
檢討現行按「綜合管理方式」管理石牆樹的策略。
提升為石牆樹進行風險評估人員的培訓及教育要求。

聯合專責小組已向發展局局長陳茂波先生提交詳細報告闡釋檢討結果和建議,此報告(只提供英文版)亦已上載於以下網址供公眾查閱:

According to the Tree Register maintained by Development Bureau (DEVB), there are 309 stonewall trees on Government land. Many of those trees are located in densely populated urban areas. Management of the stonewall trees to maintain their healthy growth and stability has aroused a vast public concern.

With the dedication to create a safe and green living environment of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects (HKILA) and The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) established a Joint Task Force (JTF) to conduct an independent review of the prevailing practice of managing stonewall trees adopted by the Hong Kong SAR Government.

The JTF scrutinized the current tree management guidelines promulgated by DEVB and a relevant LegCo Paper, and convened interviews with stakeholders to gain in-depth appreciations of the prevailing practice of the stonewall tree management.

The JTF noted that the current guidelines adopted for assessing risk of stonewall trees focus on health defects of the trees. There lacks a well-established and comprehensive guideline which covers the stability assessment of stonewall trees. In addition, public's acceptance of carrying out mitigation measures against the risk of stonewall tree collapse is not sufficient.

The JTF made the following recommendations to the Government for consideration:

(i) Raising public awareness of the risk of stonewall tree collapse and the need for necessary precautionary mitigation measures through enhanced public education.
(ii) Promoting research and development of technical work pertaining to stonewall tree safety with collaboration of arboricultural, landscape architectural and engineering professionals.
(iii) Stepping up the arboricultural maintenance guidelines for enhancing safety of stonewall trees.
(iv) Reviewing the integrated approach for management of stonewall trees.
(v) Enhancing the training and education requirements of personnel involved in assessment of stonewall tree safety.

The Review and Recommendation Report by the JTF, which details the review and the recommendations, has been submitted to the Secretary for Development, Mr. Paul CHAN Mo-po. A copy of the Report (English only) is now available to the public via the following links:
