Bonham Road Historic Wall Trees Chopped Down 斬殺般咸道石牆樹

After a tree fell down during a rainstorm recently in Bonham Road, a row of historic wall trees nearby were chopped down by the government for fear they will fall as well. The incident sparked a public outcry as these wall trees have been around for more than a hundred years. As tree experts later confirmed, the trees were in good health as there are no decay on the stumps. 

After sketching the stumps on location, I was told by a tree expert that new shoots will grow from around the stumps, however they are unlikely to grow into healthy strong trunks again unless an experienced practitioner comes in and help choose a few better shoots to train up and at the same time eliminate the other competing shoots.
