Madagascar

One of the most popular decorative tree species in Hong Kong is the Madagascar Almond (terminalia mantaly), here lining the side of the Government offices.

The trees typically feature multiple circular planes of small delicate round leaves, arranged in regular intervals up a single central trunk. It seems perfectly adapted to Hong Kong’s sleek cityscape, offering some green respite amongst the skyscrapers.

With its often bright green leaves and tightly structured form, its easy to see why it is a go-to choice for so many landscape architects.
