Growing trees, fighting against pneumonia, and protecting nature in the name of health: a hundred people gathered up at Heping Island Park to grow trees and invoke blessings together

 This year’s Arbor Day event was held in Heping Island Park which boasts unique geological formations and an intertidal zone. Affected by the global COVID-19 outbreak which started in early January, 2020, the tourism industry is currently facing difficulties. Heping Island Park and the tourist destinations under the North Coast and Yilan National Scenic Area Administration thus stress that they have been and will continue carrying out all necessary measures to keep Wuhan pneumonia under control. Just for instance, all facilities and the environs are sterilized regularly to ensure visitors with the best travel environs. People can enjoy a safe journey, feel relaxed, and get close to nature at the park and the scenic spots of the North Coast, and keep their immune systems active.

Today (March 12), Chen Yu-hua, founder of Green Hope Spring which is among Asia’s top 100 social enterprises, attended the Arbor Day event and demonstrated how to grow trees. Since his company aims to save the Earth through growing trees, Chen explained the importance of combating climate change by growing trees. For Heping Island Park, he chose to grow velvet persimmon and bead tree which are unique to Taiwan, and noted that he looked forward to seeing primal forests restored. Each of the young trees comes with a “good-wish board” signed by a tree grower and a sponsor, who agreed to see their tree together next year - hopefully the trees will bloom and even bear fruits. This added a sense of hope to the Arbor Day event.
