DEVB launches "Tree and Landscape Map" (with photos)

The Development Bureau (DEVB) launched the "Tree and Landscape Map" series today (October 8) to promote green leisure spots in the 18 districts.

"'Tree and Landscape Map' is a publication prepared from the perspective of greening and with a lively approach, introducing special trees, landscape designs and green spaces of each district. Through this series of booklets, we wish to provide a guide for the public to visit attractions in the 18 districts so that they can enjoy local landscape and green spaces, and appreciate the seasonal changes in the landscape," a spokesperson for the DEVB said.

"Tree and Landscape Map" covers various landscape and greening attractions that are publicly accessible under government or private management. Apart from giving directions to open spaces, the map series introduces special Old and Valuable Trees, landscaping trees, avenue trees, stone wall trees, promenades and big lawn areas. The public can make reference to the booklets and plan day trips to visit the green spots in different districts.

An e-book version of the series is now available at the Greening website ( A free mobile device application will soon be available from the iTunes Store online application store. The smartphone version will provide special interactive elements like "My Trip", multiple search options and social network sharing functions. Smartphone users may surf for relevant information on each spot and search the map features within the vicinity using the "My Trip" function to plan itineraries, and share favourites with friends and families.
