It was a pleasure to see Ho Ai Li’s July 8th Sunday Times review of a new book, Trees of Bukit Timah Campus. The book was published jointly by NUS and Nature Society. According to the ST article, it is a 123 page volume that includes description of 41 of the 60 species found on the campus. A special feature is the collection of essays from alumni sharing memories of trees long gone.
“The aim is to ensure whatever is here should be preserved” said Associate Professor Lye Lin Heng, one of the book’s editors and Deputy Director of the Asia Pacific Centre for Environmental Law
A sentiment we support wholeheartedly.
1,000 copies of the book were apparently given out to guests last Sunday’s event. I hope there is a copy somewhere I could buy.
Nature Society has planned a guided tour of the Campus tree on August 19th
