Good to see article in yesterday’s South China Morning Post, re AFCD having embarked "on a programme that will gradually phase out exotic tree species and replace them with local ones".

Says that at 21 country park sites, exotic species that had been widely planted on barren land after Second World War will be removed to make way for mix of local species.

"Thousands of the trees will be felled this winter, with new species belonging to local species to be planted in spring".
