Two dead trees

  • Species: Chinese Banyan (ficus microcarpa), Indian Rubber Tree (ficus elastica) – DECEASED AND REMOVED
  • Old and valuable tree of Hong Kong listing: Chinese Banyan AFCHSD CW/41, India Rubber Tree AFCHSD CW/43
  • Location: Hong Kong Park, on the main path leading down from Kennedy Road to the main pond

Following my recent story about the Indian Rubber Tree on Eastern Hospital Road that had been diagnosed with Brown Root Rot disease, I decided to check up on two other Old and Valuable trees inside Hong Kong Park that were earlier found with the affliction.

 This was what they looked like before.

I am very sad to report that they didn’t make it.

Nothing is left of the two previous inhabitants, which is understandable since one reason for their removal is to prevent the spread of the fungus behind the disease. Still a tragedy.
