Thanks for your video report! We have visited Nam Sang Wai again recently, the second fire on 1st Jan is very close to a known roosting site for Great Cormorants. I am not sure how large the impact is the fire damage on roosting cormorants, but seems cormorants do not like the burnt areas much.

感謝報告!! 我們近日再到訪南生圍視察, 發現一月一日山火非常接近一片鸕鷀夜棲的林木。 暫時未清楚對牠們實際影響有多大,不過發現似乎牠們不太喜歡燒過的地方。

請問我們應該怎樣才可辨識"受到嚴重破壞的樹木"?
因為我個人認為不只是南生圍, 香港不同樹木都可能受到嚴重破壞.
感謝再多謝你!

南生圍的桉樹是比較耐火的, 即使樹桿變燒通心亦仍然可以生長, 不過視察時發覺也有樹木倒下, 所以提醒一下會員注意。

其他樹木的問題有時很難用肉眼辨識, 不過亦有跡可尋, 例如有樹洞、嚴重傾斜、有大量枯枝等等, 可參閱發展局護樹報告(http://www.trees.gov.hk/TC/doc/TreeCareReport2010_0820.pdf)當中提及的各點。


The Eucalyptus Trees are rather Fire-resistant and It can still survive with burnt centre. However we found some fallen trees after the fire last year so It is better to remind members of the issues.

It is sometimes difficult to spot a dangerous tree in other places, but you may be able to find problems like big tree hole, leaning, lots of dead brances etc, you may refer to the Tree Care Report from Development Bureau. (http://www.trees.gov.hk/TC/doc/TreeCareReport2010_0820.pdf)

咁即係政府植草,地產商除草?!

===========================

As I am not sure about the definition of "防火帶", I would like to ask what does it mean and is it preferable to the case in Nam Sang Wai? Thanks much!

根據恆基方面回覆,「防火帶」包括在樹邊及行人路邊清除雜草,稱可減低一旦山火發生時的火勢蔓延速度及對樹木的影響。
According to Henderson's Reply, the "firebreaks" would be done by clearing weeds along path and around trees and thus reduce impacts of fire.

What I concern is that I am wondering as if the government and the developer are using different ways to conserve Nam Sang Wai~
i am worrying as if more greenland(including grass and tree covering) will be lost due to the fire break

小妹幾日前已發電郵到各有關政府及地產商要求交待有關"防火帶"事件~
由於小妹仍然整理資料中, 詳情稍後再分享!
各位可到:

For a firebreak to work in Hong Kong, you need to create a belt of 5-10m free of grassy vegetation (trees are fine). Then, on the side that you want to project, you should plant a belt of fast growing trees to stop flying ashes from getting across the fire break. That is to say you only cut grasses and you have to plant trees. Normally, there is no need to cut trees for making a fire break.
