SINGAPORE: Some 300 tree enthusiasts spent the weekend learning more about green landmarks in various parts of the island.

The Heritage Tree Learning Journey is an annual programme organised by the National Parks Board.

The Learning Journey aims to promote the appreciation of mature trees and to educate the public on the importance of protecting mature trees.

About 200 of these green landmarks have been recognised as Singapore’s Heritage Trees.

More than half were nominated by the public and about 90 of them are found in private compounds.
